Lua Correct ipc.Write

Recommended Posts



I'm using LUA to extra values from the aerosoft airbus.


I've used writeUB as an example, obviously this limits the value to 255, then back to zero.


What would be the right option?  DD?


Many thanks


AB_AP_SPEED_Select_OFFSET = 0x66C3
AB_AP_HDG_Select_OFFSET = 0x66C4

function Autopilot_AP_SPEED_Select(varname, value)
       ipc.writeUB(AB_AP_SPEED_Select_OFFSET, value)

function Autopilot_AP_HDG_Select(varname, value)
       ipc.writeUB(AB_AP_HDG_Select_OFFSET, value)

First character U=Unsigned and S=Signed
Second character B=Byte, W=Word (=2 Bytes), D=Double (=4 Bytes).

1 Byte = 8 bits = 0..255

I don't know the Airbus interface but that's the logic behind the several ipc.writeXY() functions.
