You have to TELL it what size you want to use, and WHERE you want it to be located:gauge00=A320_EcamPageSelector!EcamPageSelector,x,y,w,hx = horizontal position of top left cornery = vertical position of top left cornerw = witdh of gaugeh = height of gauge

Because the size_mm entry sets the size exactly the same as the gauge... in millimetres. Basically you're telling FS to render this gauge at 356px X 178px where each 'pixel' is 1mm in size.As example, here's an entry for the FS9 GPS gauge in it's own window. Note the window_size entry which sets the actual size of the window itself.[Window01]Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=456,378window_size_ratio=1.000 position=0visible=0ident=20window_size= 0.370, 0.360window_pos= 0.630, 0.000gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,1,456,378

Download panelcf2.zip panel configuration tutorial from flightsim.com. Although I originally wrote it for FS98, I partly-updated it for FS2000 and all the information it contains is still relevant for FS9.If anyone wants to move it here, feel free.-Dai
