Reading doubles (Payload stations) problem

Recommended Posts

I am playing with the C# version and noticed it does not have a member to read doubles (Float64) items from FSUIPC.

I am trying to read the payload stations, and for example while the weight of the first station (0x1400) displays on FS as 2720, when I read an 8 byte array (don't know how to convert that) I get

[0] = 0
[1] = 0
[2] = 0
[3] = 0
[4] = 0
[5] = 64
[6] = 165
[7] = 64

I come up with numbers much much greater than 2720 pounds! How can I read doubles from what FS returns?

Incase you don't already know, I have a .NET dll available for interfacing with FSUIPC.

It has a number of advantages over the original SDK, for example it has support for doubles and it's object-oriented rather than procedural.

Details and download in the sticky near the top of this forum.
