  1. I have always wanted to have a "quick and dirty" way to monitor specific L:VARs without installing a new gauge and trying to find the ones needed by scrolling etc. Perfect for things like programming sub-systems and such. It's a 3 step process. Run "LVARS_2_TXT.lua" to get the full list (output = "ALL LVARS.txt") of L:VARs currently loaded by the selected aircraft. It's a "run once" lua but, one can use it multiple times if multiple aircraft projects are being done as it appends to the file. (creates a master list) -OR- Run the FSUIPC command "List local panel variables" to do the same and written to the FSUIPC log (Formatting necessary!) , without using "LVARS_2_TXT.lua" - The former provides a pre-formatted, easy to use output. Pick the LVARs needed to monitor and copy them over into the array in "LVAR_SPECIFIC.lua". NOTE - The output in "ALL LVARS.txt" are pre-formatted for an easy copy --> paste. See notes in lua. Note - The lua display will truncate anything after 1023 characters so if this starts happening reorder your list in priority order. Run "LVAR_SPECIFIC.lua" to monitor your selected L:VARs. LVARS_2_TXT.lua -- "LVARS_2_TXT" Loaded LVARs writer, by Roman Stoviak, September 2015 -- Open an exisitng "All LVARS.txt" file to append to, or create it if it doesn't exist. -- It will go into the Modules folder because I've not included a full path (like "C:\....") -- By using "assert" you get an error message if this fails f = assert(io.open("ALL LVARS.txt","a+")) -- get aircraft name and air file name air, title = ipc.readStruct(0x3C00, "256STR", "256STR") air = air:gsub('%z','') title = title:gsub('%z','') -- write the text headings f:write("_______________________________________________________________\nTITLE, AIR FILE\n" .. title .. ", " .. air .. "\n_______________________________________________________________\n") i = 0 while i < 65536 do name = ipc.getLvarName(i) if name ~= nil then f:write("\"" .. name .. "\",\n") i = i + 1 else break end end -- tidy up at end ... f:write("\n____________________ END OF LIST ____________________\n\n") f:close() ipc.display("A pre-formatted L:VARs list has been created as FSX/Modules/ALL LVARS.txt", 0, 3) ipc.sleep(3000) -- end of program LVAR_SPECIFIC.lua Note - The lua below has the array preloaded with L:VARs "test1" thru "test4" as an example. -- "MONITOR SPECIFIC LVARS" fsuipc display, by Roman Stoviak, September 2015 --[[ NOTES - Enter each L:VAR to monitor by getting the "preformated" list provided by "LVARS_2_TXT.lua". Each L:VAR name MUST be surrounded in quotes and followed by a comma for each the array entry(s). One could use a single line for each L:VAR -or- Place all the L:VARs inline. EX. separate lines "test1", "test2", "test3", "test4", EX. same line "test1","test2","test3","test4", PLACE THE L:VAR LISTING IN THE ARRAY BELOW BETWEEN THE 2 COMMENTS CONTAINING "!!!!!"
