How to trigger control


Recommended Posts

The easiest way would be to use the new beta version of the DLL as it has a feature to send controls directly to FS. I've attached it here. Just overwrite your current DLL and XML file with the new ones.


To send a control call:


FSUIPCConnection.SendControlToFs(ControlNumber, ParameterValue);


This just sends the control immediately (no need for a Process() call).


There are also overloads that take an Enum instead of the raw control number. For your request to reload the aircraft you would use:

FSUIPCConnection.SendControlToFS(FsControl.RELOAD_USER_AIRCRAFT, 0);

(A parameter is not required for this control so it's just set to 0).



Enums available are:


FsControl - the normal FSX/P3D list of controls

FSUIPCControl - Additional controls added by FSUIPC

FSUIPCAxesControl - Used to control axed assign directly in FSUIPC


PMControl - Controls for Project Magenta software

PMDG_737_NGX_Control - Controls defined in the PMDG 737 NGX SDK
