Programming rotary switches

Recommended Posts

I try to program a rotary switch on my  PFC Radiopanel for usa ase course selector and heading selector.
This is with the use of FSUIPC and PMDG 737NGX
I am unable to get it to turn anticlocwise. It turns ok clockwise.
What do I have to do to get it to work both ways?
I am trying to  program the 2 GPS rotary and the alt preselect set Rotary on my PFC Radio panel. I want to use them as knobs for course selector and heading selector. I am programming via Buttons+Switches and using 70008 for the course and  70022 for heading but I am unable to get the rotary to turn anticlockwise. I cant find the correct parameter setting to do this. They turn ok clockwise.

I have tried with Peter Dawson but he was unable to answer

Hi Henning, 

I'm using the Event ID's for all my switches and rotarys. Eg the Cruise Altitude i'm using ID 69850 and parameter 16384 to increase and 8192 to decrease. Also via Buttons in FSUIPC

 

Hope that helps

Regards

Claus

Hi Henning,

Similar to Claus except that I use Lua plug-ins to call those controls from my home-built "functional MCP" through FSUIPC.  I show the controls and their parameters below as I programmed them in the Lua plug-in but it will give you the numbers.

For Captain's course selector :

Increase (clockwise) : ipc.control(70008, 16384)

Decrease (anti-clockwise) : ipc.control(70008, 8192)

 

For First Officer's course selector :

Increase (clockwise) : ipc.control(70041, 16384)

Decrease (anti-clockwise) : ipc.control(70041, 8192)

 

Heading increase (clockwise) : ipc.control(70022, 16384)

Heading decrease (anti-clockwise) : ipc.control(70022, 8192)

Hope this helps.


Cheers,
Emile Bax.
