can LUA read the Lights?

Recommended Posts


how can i read the lights of the Overhead in the PMDG737 NGX?

Lets say the Light for the Ground Power availeble.

Is this possible?


My guess would be that if you listed the L:Vars for that aircraft you MIGHT find one that

corresponded to that light. In which case you could read/control it via a Lua script.

I don't have that particulat aircraft but on many others I control various functions via the

L:Vars for the aircraft.

FSUIPC4 has a function to list the L:Vars for an aircraft. That command appears in the list of FS

controls available when you open the FSUIPC4 Buttons & Switches tab.
