PMDG Fight director switch

Recommended Posts

Hello Paul,

I'm using below code to on/off flight director switch in PMDG Aircraft. it's working in reverse order when i send parameter 1 it turns off to FD and 0 turns on, is it normal? or im using it wrong way?

FSUIPCConnection.SendControlToFS(PMDGEvent.EVT_MCP_FD_SWITCH_L, 1);

Thanks Thomas Richter for your response.

I read PMDG SDK ".h" file but did not find any numeric parameter that sets position of a switch, could you guide me further?

Hi,

as the ...SDK.pdf document in the same folder shows examples how to use with SimConnect, you will find the information that switch positions when not defined as bool or with multiple values then the position can be set by using 0 or 1. In case of the FD switches I would expect they are by default in ON position and on a first run without setting them a value 0 will set it to ON position. An switch position state file might be created after the first run. That just means a value of 0 is ON position and a 1 value is OFF position, just reversed.

FSUIPC just uses the controls and, if used/set, a parameter. In case it is working I wouldn't worry. (It works as well reversed in FSX PMDG, just checked here)
