Autopilot Altitude / VS/ HDG


Recommended Posts

Afternoon all



I need to display my set value always as 5 figures, ie 200ft would show 00200


i tried the below, no joy

    Dim fsAPAltitudeValue As Offset(Of Integer) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Integer)(&H07D4)
    Dim APAltitudeValue

            Me.APAltitudeValue = fsAPAltitudeValue.Value * 3.28084 / 65536
            Me.APAltitudeValue = Math.Round(APAltitudeValue, 0)
            TextBox1.Text = Me.APAltitudeValue.ToString("00000")


Similar thing with the VS, negative VS gives a value or 65,000

    Dim fsAPVSValue As Offset(Of Integer) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Integer)(&H07F2)
    Dim APVSValueMe.APVSValue = fsAPVSValue.Value

The Altitude problem is because the variable Me.APAltitudeValue has not been given a type when you defined it. If you say it's a decimal it will work:

Dim APAltitudeValue As Decimal

The VS Hold problem is because you've declare the offset as 4 bytes (Integer) when it's only 2. It will work if you change the declaration to be Short (2 bytes):

    Dim fsAPVSValue As Offset(Of Short) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Short)(&H07F2)
