gfd.SetDisplay and GF46


Recommended Posts

Hello, trying to figure out if its possible to display text on the Red LEDs of a GF46 similiar to the Yellow LEDs. I can get my text displayed on the yellow LEDS, but can't figure out if text is possible on the Red LEDSs. Thanks for any assistance.

Aren't they just two different displays on the same device? One will be display 0 and the other other display 1, I should think. What is the problem?

Regards

Pete

Pete, yes it works using goflight software. Correct it shows one alpha numeric and the other numeric. I was doing a test using the word "door".

Try a number. Also, please tell me what version of FSUIPC or WideClient you are using. The way the displays are handled was changed in one version not so long ago in order to get around a problem with '9's on one of the GF units. Maybe the change doesn't suit the GF46.

Regards

Pete

Pete I'm using FSUIPC 4.80 Just tested with number and it worked, so it appears GF46 ID0 can do text and ID1 is numeric only. Is that how it suppose to work? Would be great if ID1 could accept text also as it has a longer string and the red makes for a nice cheap annunciator.

I have an GF45 and that most certainly had only one alphanumeric-capable display, so I assume the GF46 is similar. You should be able to tell by looking at the number of elements -- 7-segments in an 8 pattern = numeric, 11 elements (I think), like an 8 with a X as well, is alphanumeric.
