Simply use WinZip to "un-CAB" the default .CAB gauges in the gauges folder of FS2k2, and examine them.Pick something simple, such as a switch, and examine the syntax and so forth. If you don't have the Panel SDK, you need to grab it from MS's support site.Look also for the excellent resource from Arne Bartels... I don't remember the zip name at the moment, but I'll be willing to bet someone will chime in with it.. Or, you can simply search the library here... :)FS2002 XML gauge syntax descriptionA collection of facts about the new gauges syntax in XML introduced with FS2002. Not a tutorial but meant as help for interesteddevelopers.

The "Bartels" file is xmlgau01.zip and def worth a look. If you search for XML tutorials on the web you will find a little help although of course it is not related to MSFS it will give you a feel for it.Gordius
