panap.cfg X&Y #'s

Recommended Posts

I have been messing around with a few panal.cfg files and I have a few questions. In the panal.cfg file there will be a line like thisgauge00=boeing747-400!Clock, 103,464,96,95 As I undersatns it:103=X coordinate464=Y coordinateAnd the last two numbers are the size in mm.My question is does any one have a map or grid that shows all the X and Y numbers.I hope my question is clearThank you

No, there's no such thing. The x and y numbers are for the upper left corner of the gauge, based on its position on the 2d panel bitmap (or virtual cockpit bitmap).Because of this, you would need to load the 2d panel background into a paint program that will tell you what the x,y coordinates are when you move your mouse to any specific point.Because of this, the same x,y on one bitmap won't be the same precise point on a different bitmap...

Thank you for the reply. It just goes to show there are no shot cuts in panel building.
