Hi Richard,

Do you mean nothing happens when right clicking the top-edge while depressing the SHIFT key?

To further help: with a bezel, this is more or less the area between the top of the screen and the top of the bezel, otherwise when screen only (nobezel), this is 1/8 of the screen from the top. When hovering in the correct area the mouse tooltip displays: "SHIFT+Click: Resize (left) / Settings (right)"

Besides, what do you mean with "unable to use DTO or HOME buttons"?

Using no bezel. When right clicking I get the various view menus wherever I click on the GTN. However I have re installed the panel configuration mod from Bills511 and now I am able to get a pop up when I left click the edge of the GTN. I can then ( on the pop up) get the configuration screen.

I am still unable to have the home or DTO buttons work on either screen (pop up or original) but not a big deal 

One other question is with the update 2.5 11 . When extracted do I run the complete installer again and assume it overwrites the original in my system?

TIA

Richard

Yes, our updates are released as full e-commerce enabled installers and overwrite older files with new ones.

Richard,
I have a fully functional RXP GTN 750 in the Comanche panel, complete  with touch screen pop up controlled with right mouse click, and with fully functional knobs and keys/buttons. It does take some additional work with the RealityXP.GTN.ini file that resides in the Comanche's main folder; with the panel.cfg file in the Comanche's panel folder; and requires positioning an .xml file in a new subfolder of the panel folder.

There is also a setting included that provides a closer match of screen brightness between the VC GTN and the pop up GTN.

Open the collapsed section below for details.
 

Spoiler

 

==============
In RealityXP.GTN.ini, add the following sections at the end.

[GTN_750_1.POP_NO_BEZEL]
popright = 15531
nobezel = true
brightness.screen = -40

[GTN_750_1.UNPOP_RXP]
popright = 15531

==============
In panel.cfg here is what my settings are.:

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main panel
Window01=Clipboard
Window02=Mini controls
Window03=Payload and fuel manager
Window04=Map
Window05=Quick radios
Window06=Maintenance hangar
Window07=Pre-flight inspection
Window08=AFK
Window09=none2    
Window10=dbg
Window11=none3
Window12=none4
Window13=GTN 750    //added

//-------------------

[Window13]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=700,580
ident=15531   // NOTE that this value must match the popright = value in the RealityXP.GTN.ini file
//window_pos= 0.760, 0.5650
window_pos= 0.200, 0.5500
window_size= 0.240, 0.4350

//gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750, 0,0,937,887,UNIT1.POP
gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1, 0,0,700,580, UNPOP_RXP  

// note that the UNPOP_RXP in the line above refers back to a section in RealityXP.GTN.ini

gauge13=Comanche!avionics, 0, 576, 1024,447  //AVIONICS DLL
gauge14=A2A_PA24!GPS_F1_750, 1, 1, 1, 1
gauge15=rxpGTN!f1vc.xml,0,0,1,1         //added f1vc.xml as gauge15

//---------------------------

[VCockpit03]
size_mm=1024,1024
pixel_size=1024,1024
texture=$GTN750
background_color=0,0,0

gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1, 0,0,677,794, POP_NO_BEZEL   

// Note that the POP_NO_BEZEL refers back to a section in the RealityXP.GTN.ini file

//---------------------------------------

 

Then, create a subfolder to the Comanche's panel folder and name it "rxpGTN".
Carefully take the text below that falls between the lines of equal signs and paste it into a text editor such as Notepad. 
Save the file into the  rxpGTN  you created as "f1vc.xml".  When saving the file, choose File Save As, and for file type select All Files (*.*), and on the filename line type the f1vc.xml.  If you do not do so the file may be instead saved as "f1vc.xml.txt" and it would then not work.  So after saving it verify the filename in that folder reads "f1vc.xml".

If for some reason the .xml file does not work for you after creating it, send me a PM here on Avsim.
