.Net Application inside of FS

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have already been able to use the FSUIPC .Net DLL to read FS values from my .Net application. What I want to do now is to make a .Net application, but integrate it inside of FS2004 and read values via FSUIPC (sort of like a gauge) I'm not sure if you any of you have used FSINN but they integrate an application inside of FS2004/FSX.

Now don't get me wrong, I know that if I'm making a program from within FS2004 then why use FSUIPC to read values if its already within FS2004. So would it be possible to make a .Net program run from within FS without FSUIPC?

If anyone can get me going in the right direction I would appreciate it :P

I think you'll face really big big problems, as your .NET application is presumably managed (interpreted) code whilst FS is all native Intel processor code. I really have no idea how you'd integrate the two opposite ways of doing things in one Process.

Thanks for the reply Pete, some more question if you don't mind :)

Would it be possible to create a something inside of FS that would communicate to my external .Net application. For example, I would make a button/switch inside of FS (like a gauge) and when pressed my .Net application would do something.

What Im trying to get at is that I need something to communicate with my external application from within FS.

Thanks,

Well, except the part about wanting a visible button or switch, with FSUIPC that's easy already, of course. A lot of programs use the FSUIPC hot button and/or hot key facilities, which work locally and to a Client via WideFS. But maybe you want to write your own interface? Why? Because you are writing a payware program and you don't want to pay license fees, or some other motive?

For a visible button or switch the Gauge is the only sensible way, really. That can still be combined with use of FSUIPC so that a networked PC can be used.
