    Using FSX&P3D Controls

    This is very good information and advise. Thanks. Now I know better what happens. I pressed the key for New_View and I found the corresponding control 65825 (see below). 249835 LogOptions changed, now 60000000 0000001D 249991 Ready Flags: Ready-To-Fly=Y, In Menu=N, In Dlg=N 251489 KEYDOWN: VK=219, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=0 251489 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS 251489 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 65825 (0x00010121), Param= 0 (0x00000000) NEW_VIEW 251785 KEYUP: VK=219, Waiting=0 255373 Memory in use: 2542Mb, Avail=1554Mb, MaxFreeBlock=1448Mb I will continue my investigations and report in case of a solution 😀

    Using FSX&P3D Controls

    Thanks Pete, this is not good news. But there is still open my question before : E. g. : how is the usage of IPC. Control (65825), the New View control. What parameter? I do not understand. Sorry. I now experiment in panel.cfg and aircraft.cfg, with the camera and window segment.

    Using FSX&P3D Controls

    Hello mtjoeng, I tested with your proposal and I got a new window with the Cockpit View. Thats good. But how can I select (e.g.by parameter) which View and the position of the new window in my FSX screen? I think I read very carefully all the docs, written by Pete, but unfortunately I didn't find a solution. Thanks

    Using FSX&P3D Controls

    Thanks.I will try and report.
  5. Hi Pete, I need for a button a FSX&P3D control for the function "New View" e.g. "Overhead Panel". I was looking around and only found in the FSX&P3D controls list some of this: "New_View", "View", "View_Mode" and I never know, do I need parameters and which one. I tested these function without a result. Is there a document which describes the usage of these controls related to the FSX or P3D functions? thanks in advance ------- Clarification of my question ------ from FSX Help Information: There are SIX MAIN VIEWS (S). Each has a subset reachable by pressing A. You can see all of them by pulling down the Views menu and choosing View Mode. You can open any of them in a new window by pulling down that Views menu and choosing New View. I want to assign a controller button to this function " selecting New View and selecting OVERHEAD view" in a new window. ------ I hope this helps ----- ********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.974b (14th March 2018) by Pete Dowson ********* Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit with SP 1.0 reported as Build 7601 (OS 6.1) fsx_mas.exe version = 10.0.61472.0 Reading options from "Z:\FSX\Modules\FSUIPC4_mas.ini" Running inside FSX on Windows 7 ... FSX has been renamed as "fsx_mas" Module base=16900000 User Name="xxxxxxxxx" User Addr="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" FSUIPC4 Key is provided WideFS7 Key is provided ***********************************************************************************
  6. I did it and it works well. But as I want to switch to a specific application, ALT-TAB is unfortunately toggling through the already started tasks. Especially the WideClient window opens as well, which I do not want to see during my task switches. I will test it now with --- = EXT.RUN ("pathname", EXT_MIN") --- Using the mouse is more cumbersome than to press a button on the flight stick. 😀 Alhard

    Button Thread Started

    Hi Pete, I did it and the mystery has gone , Thanks
  8. Hi Pete, I have a mysterious phenomena with WideFS v7.151. I start FSX and assign a button to a function , see attachment "Joy# ProblemP1". Then I start WideFS and try to assign another button, then the button ID# has changed, see attachment "Joy# ProblemP2". What happens here and what means "Button Thread Started" in the LOG , see attachment "WideClient.log" ?? It runs days before. Do you need more information? Edit: I forgot to send my WideClient.ini, see attachment. Alhard WideServer.logWideClient.logWideClient.log WideClient.ini
  9. thanks Pete, I will try and report Alhard
  10. Hi Pete, how can I assign with FSUIPC a button for "ALT-TAB" to switch to another task? When I am flying, I want to switch from my cockpit view screen to another application like FS-FlightControl or a weather program. Alhard
  11. Pete, this is my logging in FSUIPC. Lua is not activated. and this is my FSUIPC INI file. FSUIPC4_mas.ini Yes I have luckily finished. But as I am IT man by earlier profession, I am interested in all interrelationships in my SIMs and AddOns. Alhard
  12. Pete, I think you misunderstood. I know what and where ipcDebug.lua is. My question is , why comes this error message " cannot open " in the Lua Log ? Ther is no ipcDebug.lua in my FSX modules folder. Alhard
  13. HURRAH ! All function are now working, e.g. MAXIMIZE (ext.state(myHandle,EXT_MAX)) AND send keys (elseif ipcPARAM == 4 then KeyOk = ext.sendkeys(myHandle,77,3)). I used now your new version ***** LUA: "ahFC_ControlV4PD" Log [from FSUIPC version 4.974b] ********* Great job, Pete. Still unclear : *** LUA Error: cannot open Z:\FSX\Modules\ipcDebug.lua: No such file or directory Who calls ipcDebug.lua ? It is NOT in my Modules folder. ******** Now I can continue with my other project : Replace buttons by SECOND Keyboard keys. see here Talk to you again soon, I hope Alhard
  14. I understood that FSUIPC5 is for P3D only. Not FSX. Correct?
  15. OK, I will try now. You said "send key press" doesn't work? But this is exactly what I need !!??
