Stumped by stubborn window

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm trying to modify a window that contains nothing but my GPS so that I can move this window to a second monitor. No matter what I do, the window doesn't change it's size, even with no gauge in it! What the heck am I missing?!?!?I've done this before with other aircraft and had no problem. Perhaps someone can explain what the following do:window_size_ratiosize_mmwindow_sizewindow_posI *thought* they were pretty self-explanatory, but apparently I'm missing some subtlety.Help!!!!AK_Dave[Window01]Background_color=255,255,255size_mm=440,265window_size_ratio=1.000 position=8visible=0window_size= 0.450, 0.450window_pos= 0.545, 0.550//size_mm=409,287//size_mm=205, 144//window_size_ratio=1.000 //position=8//visible=0ident=GPS_PANEL//gauge00=FS9Garmin530_R1!GNS530, 617,480,409,287//gauge00=FS9Garmin530_R1!GNS530, 1,1,205,144

OK, that worked great. Thanks! Although I'm still not sure what the window_size and window_pos parameters do. Am I just stupid?Anyway, thanks for the help.AK_Dave

While this doesn't matter with C gauges, with XML gauges it most frequently will make the difference between your gauge appearing or not appearing... ;)BTW, I own and use FS Panel Studio, which I consider one of the best investments I've ever made. ;)

Amend to "FS Panel Studio", well worth the investment. Mitch
