Might I direct you to the Panel SDK? It is available free of charge from the main MS Flight Sim website. :)The view forward stuff is just that. The windows named in the views forward are effected by the settings. The dir is the angle of view, up down, for aft, left, right.With gauge settings, the numbers are usually 4 sets1: #of pixles from the left edge2: Number of pixels from the top3: the width of the gauge,4: the height of the gaugeso gauge00=MyGauges!some_gauge, 100,100,50,50means it is 100 pixels from the left and top and is 50x50 pixels in size. If the last two are missing the gauge will default to its real size as defined by its code. If there is only one number, the gauge will default to what a zero from the top and be of default size. No numbers should default to 0,0 with the default size.Hope this helps.CheersShad
