Ok thanks for answer but I have allready made some *.xml gauges via to look at the default gauges and I attach a picture of a helicopter panel a have made now under 3days.. include a simple own gauges like the attitude indicator ect.. I will try to made the digital display as well later on my project. And that display I want to have so real as possible and the name of that screen is VEMD display and the panel I working on is an EC120B Colibri panel we will see how it goes...;)But If I made a whole gauge of a night version of my bitmap main panel if that possible to place that gauge below all other gauges?? and can I add some string or code inside my "night version bitmap gauge" so its only visible on night time or evening?? that is what I looking for now. anyone? is that possible?MVHPhilip Nordlander,Swedenhttp://forums.avsim.com/user_files/6945.jpg
