LUA help needed please- my head is exploding!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Can a LUA expert have a look at this for me please to see what I am doing wrong...

 

The aircraft I am working with is the Carenado Phenom 300.

 

This is what I see in the LINDA tracer when right click the ALT SEL knob in the aircraft VC to switch between altitude increments of 100 or 1000.

 

 

Watching new LVar: H850XPAltWheelPUSHTOGGLE = 0

[L] LVar: H850XPAltWheelPUSHTOGGLE = 1

[L] LVar: H850XPAltWheelPUSHTOGGLE = 0

[L] LVar: H850XPAltWheelPUSHTOGGLE = 1

 

This is the LUA function I wrote .....

 

function alt_incr_toggle_100 ()

     ipc.writeLvar("HP850XPAltwheelPUSHTOGGLE", 1)

end

function alt_incr_toggle_1000 ()

     ipc.writeLvar("HP850XPAltwheelPUSHTOGGLE", 0)

end

 

I then assigned this onto a button in LINDA using the fields ON PRESS and ON RELEASE.

 

However when I watch the same Lvar in the tracer while pushing and releasing the assigned button the tracer shows no change? LINDA sees the button as working (i.e when I push the button LINDA moves to assign button position 30)

 

This is similar code that I have written for other switch functions and they work ok.

 

Any ideas?

 

 

Regards

Stinger

Lower case 'w' needs to be uppercase?

When programming in LUA it is very important to remember that this language is case-sensitive. All function names and variables must be checked for the correct upper and lower case usage. It is a lesson I keep having to relearn.
