Suggestion: Virtual button on the GUI

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was thinking....

 

Would be a nice feature to have 1 or more virtual buttons on the LINDA GUI to execute commands.  Could be useful for executing things like C&D commands so you don't have to assign the command to an actual button or, even, to use when the clickspot on some airplane isn't very good.  Is that doable?

Is that doable?

 

I think so, but that is something, Scott has to answer.

The idea itself is not bad ... I also can think of some scenarios to use e.g. 3 Buttons

 

 

A workaround if you need it urgently is, that you open the actions.lua of your addons in LINDAs editor and click with the second mouse button on the name of the function you want to execute. That also runs the function.

 

But it's just a workaround

I like the idea and it is certainly doable (= koennen wir dass machen). I would see a separate pop up window like the FS2Crew command bar. However it will have to wait until I have time to do some more coding. What do you mean by C&D?

C&d = cold & dark....something that really doesn't belong to a real button
