ipc.writeSTR() Window

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

It seems in P3Dv4.3 that sometimes the code

ipc.writeSTR(0x3380, "  text ")           
ipc.writeSW(0x32FA, n)

writes to the sim's 'Green Bar', and other times to the common Simconnect window.

Is there a way to force the output text to the "Green Bar", and to know to which type of display window the output will go?

Thx,

Al

I'm sure it tells you in the documentation.

Multiline data goes to the SimConnect Message Window, single line to the SimConnect Text (what you call "the green bar". A mult-line message is determined by the presence of a New Line (ASCII 10) or Return (ASCII 13) character code, even if followed by nothing else.

This is similar to the action taken in all previous versions of FSUIPC and FS in which these facilities have been supported.. It was done this way as the closest to some sort of ongoing 'compatibility' that could be achieved.

Ah, it was the single line vs multi-line difference that I didn't understand.

Thanks very much for clearing that up.
