Hi Arne,!04d! did it :-)If you don't mind my asking: how does one obtain this kind of info (other than asking in this forum :-) ) ?The panel SDK is very limited on XML, and without your XML introduction document I would have been nowhere with all the XML gauges I've made.Thanks, Rob

>Hi Arne,>>!04d! did it :-)>>If you don't mind my asking: how does one obtain this kind of>info (other than asking in this forum :-) ) ?>Thanks, Rob I just tried different varations in my Test Gauges. I knew about things like !04d and had looked over the C formats in Arne's XML archive. For some reason what I'd copied and pasted into my reply worked for my 'count' variable.>The panel SDK is very limited on XML, and without your XML>introduction document I would have been nowhere with all the>XML gauges I've made. Hopefully, something better will be in an SDK for FS9 'XML'. Which appears to be more powerful and not such a cludge. Ron

It looks like a typical parameter in C when using printf. A lot of similarities (it would have been "%04d" in C)I wonder if !04X! works too (hexadecimal number with leading 0)
