Flood COM, NAV, Q400


Recommended Posts

Hi Paul,

 

Sometimes and some payware flood NAV com

 

This an example

19:23 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:23 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:24 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:24 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:24 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:24 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:25 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:25 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:25 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:25 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:26 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:26 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:26 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:27 UTC Transponder set to 0465
19:27 UTC Transponder set to 0465

Link: http://www.skydream-airlines.com/index.php/pireps/view/1649

 

the code:

Public transponder As Offset(Of Integer) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Integer)(&H354)
Public Function gettransponder()
        Return (Conversion.Hex(transponder.Value)).ToString()
    End Function
 Private Sub tmrtrans_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles tmrtrans.Tick
        If transponder.Value = txtTransponder.Text Then
        Else
            Dim transponder As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & vbCrLf
            My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(logname, transponder, True)
            Dim xml As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & "*"
            My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(reportname, xml, True)
            transponder = txtTransponder.Text
        End If
        tmrtrans.Stop()
    End Sub

    Private Sub txtTransponder_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles txtTransponder.TextChanged
        If txtTransponder.Text.Length = 1 Then
            txtTransponder.Text = "000" & txtTransponder.Text
        End If
        If txtTransponder.Text.Length = 2 Then
            txtTransponder.Text = "00" & txtTransponder.Text
        End If
        If txtTransponder.Text.Length = 3 Then
            txtTransponder.Text = "0" & txtTransponder.Text
        End If
        tmrtrans.Start()
    End Sub

The question: How to avoid to catch the value when is the same ?

Hi Fred,

 

This line in tmrtrans_tick() is wrong:

If transponder.Value = txtTransponder.Text Then

It's trying to catch the same value so the log line does not appear. But, it's testing the integer value against the converted hex string. They will never be the same.

 

The easiest way to fix this with the code you have is:

 

1. Create a form level private variable to hold the last value written: (Make it the same type as the offset (i.e. Integer))

Private lastTransponder as Integer

2. Change the tmrtrans_tick() to test against this value. When you write a new value, update the 'lastTransponder' variable: (I also rewrote the 'If = then else' as 'if <> then')

Private Sub tmrtrans_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles tmrtrans.Tick
   If transponder.Value <> lastTransponder Then
      Dim transponder As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & vbCrLf
      My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(logname, transponder, True)
      Dim xml As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & "*"  
      My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(reportname, xml, True)
      lastTransponder = transponder.Value
   End If
   tmrtrans.Stop()
End Sub

Try that.

Thanks Paul,

 

Problem maybe the timer is stopped but never started

Private Sub tmrtrans_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles tmrtrans.Tick
   If transponder.Value <> lastTransponder Then
      Dim transponder As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & vbCrLf
      My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(logname, transponder, True)
      Dim xml As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & "*"  
      My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(reportname, xml, True)
      lastTransponder = transponder.Value
   End If
   tmrtrans.Stop()
End Sub

I will make a try. I suppose all NAV and COM it's wrong ?!

 Private Sub txtNAV1_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles txtNAV1.TextChanged

The timers don't make any sense to me. They seem to be started, run one tick and then stop again. I don't know if you want to sort that out. It could lead to more problems.

 

I suppose all NAV and COM it's wrong ?!

 

 

 

Yes they all have the same problem. They all compare the value with the text. It's the same solution: store the last value and compare against that.

      lastTransponder = transponder.Value
   End If
   tmrtrans.Stop()
End Sub

 

I have an error in VB 2012 Ultimate with this line with transponder.Value (as string)

lastTransponder = transponder.Value
I have made the changes bellow:

 

Private lastTransponder as Integer

  Private Sub tmrtrans_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles tmrtrans.Tick
   If transponder.Value <> lastTransponder Then
      Dim transponder As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & vbCrLf
      My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(logname, transponder, True)
      Dim xml As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & "*"  
            My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(reportname, xml, True)
            lastTransponder = transponder.Length.ToString
        End If
        tmrtrans.Stop()
    End Sub

    Private Sub txtTransponder_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles txtTransponder.TextChanged
        tmrtrans.Start()
    End Sub
It's work now but it's the good way to code ?! You told me to remove timers. I'm agree with you so how I can do that ?

Thanks,

Fred

transponder.Length.ToString will not work.

 

I have an error in VB 2012 Ultimate with this line with transponder.Value (as string)

 

 

 

Ah yes. I did not see that there is another variable being declared call transponder:

Dim transponder As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & vbCrLf

This is bad because it's the same name as the offset called transponder.

 

If you change the name of this new variable then it will work. I changed it to transponderMsg:

Private Sub tmrtrans_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles tmrtrans.Tick
   If transponder.Value <> lastTransponder Then
      Dim transponderMsg As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & vbCrLf
      My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(logname, transponderMsg, True)
      Dim xml As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & "*"
      My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(reportname, xml, True)
      lastTransponder = transponder.Value
   End If
   tmrtrans.Stop()
End Sub

 

You told me to remove timers. I'm agree with you so how I can do that ?

 

 

 

This should do the same thing without timers. I renamed the timer tick event and removed the timers start/stop calls.

    Private Sub logTransponder()
        If transponder.Value <> lastTransponder Then
            Dim transponderMSg As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & vbCrLf
            My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(logname, transponderMSg, True)
            Dim xml As String = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("[HH:mm]") & Chr(32) & "Transponder set to " & txtTransponder.Text & "*"
            My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(reportname, xml, True)
            lastTransponder = transponder.Value
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub txtTransponder_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles txtTransponder.TextChanged
        If txtTransponder.Text.Length = 1 Then
            txtTransponder.Text = "000" & txtTransponder.Text
        End If
        If txtTransponder.Text.Length = 2 Then
            txtTransponder.Text = "00" & txtTransponder.Text
        End If
        If txtTransponder.Text.Length = 3 Then
            txtTransponder.Text = "0" & txtTransponder.Text
        End If
        logTransponder()
    End Sub

        If txtTransponder.Text.Length = 1 Then

Ok I will change after the flight. To the processflaps() function I have also get the aircraft model but in my example I have 2 conditions one for AIRBUS an other for BOEING But Now I'm flying with PMDG 747-8F is good is BOEING but the flaps detentes are not the same like 737-800... How todo a well loop by subcategories I have seen in the forum someone declare "obj".

processflaps.txt
