The simplest gauge. Where to start?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a gauge, which is actually fairly simple, but I don't know where to start. I just want to see the pitch attitude, bank angle and airspeed in plain text on the top of the screen. In this stage I don't need fancy graphics, but having this information is important (I need to work with this info a further stage). I studied the FS2004 SDK and Arne Bartels' XML guide but I still don't know where to start. I also studied the XML gauges of the Beech Baron, but it uses graphics, while I only require the plain readings. Can anybody give me kick in the good direction to only display indicated airspeed on the screen? Tnx alot!Rico
