Trouble using FSUIPC in P3D to trigger custom events (e.g. set flaps)

Recommended Posts

Fellow pilots,

 

I'm trying to set up key commands to set flaps to a specific setting. I think I've worked out what should work, but it isn't working.

 

I want to press "Ctrl-A" to set flaps to 5. Looking in the SDK, that should be event 76776. I've tried parameter values 0, 1, -1, and the number associated with a mouse left-click from the SDK. But when I press Ctrl-A (I've also tried other key combos and assigning to a joystick button), I only hear a small "click" in the sim and nothing else seems to happen.

 

Here's my FSUIPC 4.939n setup:

From everything I can find online, this should work. I can't get any controls to work... when flaps didn't work I tried various other buttons in the 737 cockpit and I always just get the little "click" sound and no action.

 

Any hints as to what I might be missing? This is on Win7 64-bit with the latest 737NGX version with the latest FSUIPC version in P3D 2.5 with latest hotfix....

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Trying again tonight, I figured it out. Using control 76776 and parameter 536870912 (MOUSE_FLAG_LEFTSINGLE) is working now... I could have sworn I tried that but I was trying so many combinations of things last night I must have done something wrong.
