Dim db As AirportsDatabase = FSUIPCConnection.AirportsDatabase

Dim surfaceType As FsSurface = db.Airports(lblArrival.Text).Runways(Getrunaway(lblDeparture.Text)).Surface

Surface = surfaceType.ToString()

The code looks okay.

Please check the following:

a. The airport code must be all upper case. So maybe use this:

Dim surfaceType As FsSurface = db.Airports(lblArrival.Text.ToUpper()).Runways(Getrunaway(lblDeparture.Text)).Surface 

b. The runway code must be two digits e.g. "09". "9" will not work. Plus an optional suffix of L, C or R (capitals). e.g. 09L. No spaces.

These will NOT work:

  • 9 (only one digit)
  • 9L (only one digit)
  • 09 L (space between 9 and L)
  • 09l (Lower case L)

These WILL work

  • 09
  • 36
  • 27L
  • 09R

If you can't get it working I'll need to know more information:

1. What is the problem? Is there an error? Does it return the wrong surface, or nothing?

2. Which airport and runway are you trying?

3. What's being returned from the GetRunway() function?

4. Maybe show me the GetRunway() function.

I can't really help any more with that. I can write code for something that complicated that you can just paste directly into your application.

The code I wrote there is just an example or how it could be done. It shows you a strategy for achieving what you want.

I've no idea how to integrate it into your application because I don't know your application.

I can give general advice but you need to write your own code.

Hi Paul,

1) No error just Disconnect Fsuipc when I takeoff

2) EHAM

3) Runway by wind

Output:

I know,

I have seen your sample code in vb.net easy to understand. But you have seen the project, and fsuipc is  open and call too many time.
I think the first person write the code need to catch datas in real-time before track data with start button.

On the top real-time flight information is given before the flight is started means (fsuipc connection is open).

Try to remove this part of code to use to good way but it's an other story !!!

Hi Paul,

I have take your sample from SDK with your Latest dll and have error with :

1) FSInstallationPath return nothing

2) getActiveRunwayForNearbyAirport() return nothing

3) FSUIPCConnection.AirportsDatabase.Load() just after FSUIPCConnection.Open() return me Exception can't connect

Hi Fred,

That code runs fine here. No problems.

I can't really see what's going wrong without the exception details and the call stack.

In the openFSUIPC() method, can you comment out the lines:
 

Try

Catch
    messagebox(...
End Try

Then run it again. You need to get the exception details and show me the call stack. Use the 'Copy Details' link and paste it here.

Paul

Sorry Fred, I didn't see your reply. I think you edited the post. I don't get notified of edits, only new posts.

Yes the message will be the same, but this time the stack trace has line numbers.

However, my source code has changed a lot since I sent that .pdb.

Can you please use the current version attached, get the error and show me the full exception as above.

There might be a few changes to the DLL that break your code. I have renamed a few properties and methods. Let me know if you get any errors and I'll tell you the new names.

Thanks,

Paul

Try your conversion table

60EC 8 GPS: Distance to next waypoint, floating point double, in metres

8 (Specified as FLOAT64)System.Double Double Double

I Have convert to :

 Dim gps_distance As Offset(Of Double) = New Offset(Of Double)(&H60EC)

So now conversion in NM rounded ?

This code works fine for me:

    Dim gps_distance As Offset(Of Double) = New Offset(Of Double)(&H60EC)
    Dim gps_nextWaypoint As Offset(Of String) = New Offset(Of String)(&H60A4, 6)

 

        FSUIPCConnection.Process()
        Dim distanceNM As Double = Math.Round(gps_distance.Value / 1852, 0)
        Me.TextBox1.Text = gps_nextWaypoint.Value.ToString() & ": " & distanceNM.ToString() + "NM"

First check unconverted (metres) value in gps_distance.Value. Is that 0 as well?

These offsets are only active when you have a flight plan active in Flight Sim. Are you sure you have one loaded? Are there waypoints defined in the flight plan?

If you load the default Cessna with the G1000 GPS do you see the route on the GPS in the cockpit? It should be a magenta line.

For the AirportsDatabase error - it seems there is a problem with one of the coms frequencies at an airport.

As you have different scenery to me, I can't reproduce this.

Could you zip these two files from your main flight sim install folder and attach them here please?

  • F5.csv
  • Runways.xml

Thanks,

Paul

Thanks for the file. I will investigate...

I see you're using P3DV4. I know there are some things that don't work with V4. Maybe this is one of them.

I would ask Pete in the main forum about this distance offset in P3dV4. I think he's back from holiday tomorrow.

I have FSX and it works okay. I don't have P3D so I can't test it there.

Distance not good maybe try an other offset?

You could try 60AC and 60B4 (Lon/Lat of next waypoint).

If those are okay you can make a FsLatLonPoint with them. Then make another from the Player's Lat/Lon. Then you can get distance between both points (FsLatLonPoint.DistanceFromInNauticalMiles()).

Quote

Have you a way to avoid negative number to distance ?

You can use Math.Abs() to make a number positive.

  • Math.Abs(5) = 5.
  • Math.Abs(-5) = 5.
