conditional button assigment


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I tried last week some things with the conditional button assigments. Im at work now so I dont remember the exact offsets I was using. Anyway following is what I liked to accomplish :

offset for external view (xxxx)

value 1 = outside view

value 4 = spot plane view

So I put in the fsuipc.ini for the same button press two lines

the first line : when value on offset xxxx is 1 -> change it to 4

the 2nd line : when value on offset xxxx is 4 -> change it to 1

but this did not workwhen it was 4 and I pressed the button it went to 1

when it was 1 and I pressed the button it went to 1

the reason : I think that when it is one fsuipc matches the first line and executed

but then it matches with the new value also the second line and sets it back to 1

Correct.

If you know it is either 4 or 1 you could simply use one line (and even program it in the FSUIPC options dialogue) to "togglebits" with a parameter 5. That'll change 4 to 1 and 1 to 4. (But also 2<->7, 3<->6 and 5<->0, giving 3 unassigned values with unknown consequences.

The other (safer) way, in the INI, is to use the latching Flag facilities. Just use the flag for the same button, which is toggled each time you press the button.

if flag is clear write 1

if flag is set write 4

The own-flag testing method effectively turns an ordinary press-button into a latching toggle, doing alternate actions on each press.

Regards

Pete
