Undocked window command on FSX?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

i'm newbie here and just an FSUIPC (registered) end-user with poor ... poor ... technical background on its use. I always found answers to my doubts on this forum, but this time i haven't been succesful. I do apologise in advance if this topic has already been covered elsewhere. And on this very case, pls let me know where and when to find the proper post.

 

My question is quite simple. Is it possible by FSUIPC mapping a button of my joysticks to obtain this straightforward action on my FSX: "open a new UNDOCKED window"? I know keys for "new window", "type of view", but I don't know how to replicate 'mouse right-click' and "undock window".

 

Should you be curious why I'm asking this, it's just because I would like to be able to open only on a needed-base one (or some) new window, place it on the correct place and size by means of Panel Position (Panel Store / Panel Restore) software, and eventually close it, in order to save frames.

 

I didn't find such a command either on native FSX commands or the new ones available on last FSUIPC version that I own (4.923).

 

Thx in advance,

cheers

Isn't there a keypress for this. assigned by default in FS?  Let me see ... yes, the [ key to open, ] key to close. Logging the resulting events in FSUIPC tells me that these are the FS controls "New view" and "Close view", which you can certainly assign to.

Hello Pete,

 

thanks for the prompt answer, but ... "[" and "]" keys, that I well know, and which incidentally on Italian keyboards (and Italian FSX) become "apostrophe" and "ì" (vocal i with the accent), are for "Open a new window" and "close active window". But both of them are NOT in UNDOCKED status, that is what I need. To undock them you still need to right-click and chose "undock". And this is exactly what I mean when I asked for such a command. Or there's something I didn't catch?

 

Thx in advance, cheers,

roberto

Ah, sorry. Yes I missed that point. And no, there is no way I know to operate the dock / undock action apart from using the right-click menu.  I did search for a way of "fiddling" it through direct Windows messages when developing some of the Lua plug-in facilities butI was not successful.

 

Regards

Pete
