Well, this is only a guess.1 and 5 look like the runway ( associated with glideslope?), closer to ground shows runway at different angle?.2 and 7 look like glide slope.6 VSI?3 and 4 are hard to see, so difficult to tell.Sorry can't be more help.Steve

Hi Jan,great work actually. :-eekOne thing tho - you say, just XML, "no bitmaps"?? Does that imply yuo use the XML "vector gfx" to draw onto the HUD??Would be interesting to know, since that would AFAIK be the first time something "vector-drawn" on a transparent background. :-hahThanks for any additional info regarding that.Etienne :-wave

Jan,Looking at the pic, it looks like the text strings have some sort of antialiasing. Is this true? I've tried to use an "alpha" channel to make the XML text look smooth, instead of the "jagged" aspect for default, with no success so far. Regards,Tom
