Making a C Gauge talk to a Delphi EXE in FS

Recommended Posts

Anyone here have any idea how a C gauge could talk to a Delphi created EXE in FS? I'd like one of my gauges to be able to send a command to the EXE.I thought about having the EXE listen for keypresses transmitted from the gauge, but I've learned that sending keypresses from gauges can become a royal pain because other app's can intercept the keypress.Windows Shell Execute in a C gauge?Bryan

Well, that piece of code is a Blast From The Past!! I have it (and it's companion ShellWait) blackboxed in my code libraries. I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work but I can see a downside. Launching an external app from with FS can cause FS to become the non-active window and therefore to freeze. Simconnect has to be the way to go.-Dai
