Pete,

In buttons section of FSUIPC what means the number in the box of " Parameters "

All of the "AXIS ..." and "... SET" controls for FS use a parameter too -- for Axis controls it would be the value of the joystick input, and so on. the example given in the FSUIPC documentation for the KOHLSMAN_SET control shows the parameter being used to set the value for an Altimer setting of 1013.2 mb (29.92"). For FLAPS SET you'd work out what parameter values you need to enter for specific flap settings (this would vary according to the number of detentes). And so on.

If you are not using any of the controls which accept a parameter then it is irrelevant. Do not worry about it.

Pete,

I am using two buttons of the joystick for spoilers, one to arm the Spoilers and another to deploy them.

Yes, there's no use for the parameters in those two controls.

If you wanted a button to set, say 50% spoiler deployment then you'd use the Spoilers Set control with a parameter like 8192 (maybe -- I can't remember off-hand whether the spoiler runs from 0 to 16383 or to 32767, or neither).

Mostly, when using a control with parameters, it's a matter of experimentation.
