VB Language and FSUIPC how can it match?

Recommended Posts

I am currently in progress creating own FD/ND display using Visual Basic Active X or COM control. (Please don't tell Enricho Schratti, I didn't want to offend him. At least I have his software :lol: ) I am at few step away from the final part. The only part that I have not completed is a language, it took me days to figure out how I could get my project to work with FS. Just until I read Peter Dowson manual I finally get a little concept, but could not determined how to use it as of yet.

From the FSUIPC manual "FSUIPC for programmers". based on tables of each functions and values shown as:

TAS--True Airspeed as Knots *128 --value: 02B8

Now from my VB written language: speed.Airspeed[=Value]

Due to my implementation by understanding combination between VB and FS I would need someone to verify if that is the correct methods.

Reminder: I am using VB6 ActiveX control to creating FD.OCX and it requires VB Language to get it working.

Value from FS and VB Language in combination:

speed.Airspeed[=02b8] ??

Please let me know...Thanks

Note: The project I am about to create is not for sale or selling purpose. Its for me to use some practice or gaining experience on programming skills.
