Displaying the map


Recommended Posts

Thanks for your quick reply to "Joystick button for Teamspeak". Now its working fine. But here another question:

Using "L" on my keyboard, I can open in FS9 the map and using "Enter" I come back to the cockpit. I assigned a switch on my ThrQ for opening the map (Buttons and switches/select for key press/press the key.../key press not to be held) and it works fine. But I failed to come back to the cockpit view with the same switch. How can I manage this?

Thanks in advance, Guenther

Sorry, I'm not with this. "L" operates Lights doesn't it? At least it does in my FS9 -- all of them, in fact! Can you explain what you mean when you say "using "L" on my keyboard, I can open in FS9 the map and using "Enter" I come back to the cockpit.". Which map is this and how come it operates with "L"?

Pete,

"Map" means the dafault map in FS9 which can be opened under "Environment/Daytime/Airports/Map/Weather" On the KEyboard this map is normally assigned to "K" = (german) Karte but on my keyboard this is assigned to L (No idea why L und not K). But thats of course not my problem.

My problem is, as I mentioned in my last post, how to close the map and to come back to the cockpit view, using a ThQ-button I assigned to "Map" by FSUIPC.

Hope this answers your question,

Guenther

AhI found the assignable control, in FS9's assignments, saying "Display/Hide Map" (which isn't assigned to anything by default as far as I can tell). But I assigned "K" and tried it, and, of course, it brings up the Modal dialogue showing the map. Despite the name "Display/Hide, pressing K again of course doesn't hide the map. Only the normal dialogue controls like escape and the dialogue buttons can do that.

All FS menu-type dialogues are "modal", meaning they stop everything else. Nothing else in the main FS processing thread is running, can run, when it is displayed. This includes FSUIPC, which therefore cannot see your keys or buttons.

Sorry.

Regards

Pete
