Altimeter Help !!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,My English is not native.I am building Altimeter gauge that use needle and analog numbers.everything is working but it is not displaying it as I want.In the analog numbers I used the SHIFT to move the strip up and it sliding the number without problem BUT I dont want it to slide, for example: if I am at 10000 feet I want it to change from 09999 to 10000 without the sliding all the way, from 0 to 1, from 1 to 2 and so on without the sliding thing.I hope you will understand me, as I said before the English is not native.I am attaching the source code: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> - Bla Bla BlaBla.xml - 0.000,0.000247,270 - True- 63.000,82.000 - True0.000,317.000 - 0.000,0.003 - 0.000100000.000 I hope you can help me.Thanks

1) I think there is no AXIS in the MASKIMAGE.2) I think you need yo add something to the script but I don't know what.if I understand you right you want to switch the 1 with 2 when you rich 20000 feet and not slinding from 1 to 2 and so on.I hope I helped you with some directions.COOLFSX

I want to switch the Ten-Thousends analog number like this:Just before the aircraft rich the 10,000 feet it will switch the 0 digit with the 1 digit, as the aircraft rich 20,000 feet it will switch the 1 digit with 2 digit and so on....right now it working but the digits are sliding all the way from 0 to 1 and from 1 to 2 and so on....I just want them to switch second before the aircraft rich the alt.Thanks

You could simply use a String instead! ;)

I notice that other panels using the SHIFT and when the analog digits show 19998-19999 the TEN THOUSENDS number start to move but not before or all the way from 10000 to 20000.I am using BMP as strip.folks, I need that the anaglg strip I am using will start to "roll" or "slide" few feets before riching the 10,000 or 20,000 and so on.Thanks

CODVIRIn a normal tumbler type display the Units digit moves in a linear fashion but the other digits (Tens, Hundreds, Thousands etc) only move to the next digit whilst the units digit is 'rolling' from the 9 to the 0. Is this what you are trying to achieve?OR as Bill Leaming interpreted do you want the digits to behave as they would in a Digital readout ie the numbers don't roll they just change?Jim

Hi Jim,the first option is what I need.Tens Hundreds and thousands need to move to the second digit while the units is rolling from 9 to 0.How can I achive it?Thanks

CODVIR,I specialise in C-gauges and leave my friends/colleagues to do the XML ones. So I've only ever written tumblers in C never in XML.Basically i take the altitude and break it down in to its UNITS, TENS, HUNDREDS, THOUSANDS etc and assign these to variables. I then check IF the UNITS value is greater than 9 THEN move the TENS at the same rate that the UNITS are moving. Similarly if the UNITS are greater than 9 AND (&&) the TENS are greater than 9 THEN move the HUNDREDS at the same rate as the UNITS are moving.There is probably a much more elegant way of doing this in XML but I'm afraid I don't have example code to share with you.regardsJim

Hi Jim,I absolute understnad you. I am coming also from c++ and c# but I wanted to understand how to do it in XML.I think I will transfer my self to the c++ again.thanks

do you have resources for the c/c++ gauges.I mean web site or whatever with c/c++ gauge source samples??Thanks

Sorry I don'tHopefully with my explanation of the theory and the code sample I posted you will be able to work it out for yourself.Most altimeters have as their UNITS dial 00-10-20-30-40-50-60-70-80-90-00 or just 00-20-40-60-80-00Lets say that the altitude is currently 13876 feet.plane_height_var=13876plane_height_100 = plane_height_var / 100 = 13876/100 = 138digit_10 = plane_height_var -plane height_100 * 100 = 13876 - 13800 =76So the value returned to the UNITS moving card is 76 Hope this helpsRegardsJim
