how to use guarded toggle switchs


Recommended Posts

using fsuipc for fs2004 on the old pmdg 737ng, I could use the mouse macro to togle the master battery on and off and not have to worry about the switch guard. Now on the pmdg 737ngx, you must open the guard and then flip the toggle switch. Is there a way in fsuipc for FSX to tackle this problem?

Sincerely,

Jason Chandler

If the list of PMDG controls, provided in their SDK, includes one to open the guard, then you can certainly use FSUIPC to assign to that control, by number.

Thank you for your reply.

Using FSUIPC for FSX, can the master battery switch be turned off with out first opening the switch guard? I'm trying not to assign one toggle to open and close the guard, and another to flip the switch on and off. If not, I guess I could always leave the grard always open.

Thanks

If PMDG has provided controls for both you can assign both, in order, to the same button. You'd need to do this by editing the INI file, unless you'd be content to use a push button and assign the guard opening to "press" and switch operating to "release". For a toggle switch, though, you'd need both on the same "press" (and the reverse on the release).

INI file button assignment formats are documented in the Advanced User's guide. You can have many actions assigned to the one button. they are executed in rder of the preceding line number (n= ...).
