Using FSX&P3D Controls

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I need for a button a FSX&P3D control for the  function "New View" e.g. "Overhead Panel".

I was looking around and only found in the FSX&P3D controls list some of this:

"New_View", "View", "View_Mode"  and I never know, do I need parameters and which one. I tested these function without a result.

Is there a document which describes the usage of these controls related to the FSX or P3D functions?

thanks in advance

------- Clarification of my question ------

from FSX Help Information:

There are SIX MAIN VIEWS (S).  Each has a subset reachable by pressing A.

You can see all of them by pulling down the Views menu and choosing View Mode.

You can open any of them in a new window by pulling down that Views menu and choosing New View.

I want to assign  a controller button to this function " selecting New View and selecting OVERHEAD view"  in a new window.

------ I hope this helps -----

I'd guess you have to make a zzzwhatever.lua in the \modules dir

that you trigger with your assign button and in the dropdown "lua zzzwhatever"

in the lua the ipc.control(zzzzzzzzzzzzz, 0) <> "zzzzzzzzzzzzz" you find in the "The 2016 List of FSX and P3D Controls.pdf" f.i.:

NEW VIEW 65825


^^^ chk of these are the correct ones

in the zzzwhatever.lua:

ipc.control(65825, 0) -- new view (prob a copy of the active view)
ipc.control(67156, 0) -- top down (change to topdown)

you prob do not need a parameter

ipc.control(65825) -- new view (prob a copy of the active view)
ipc.control(67156) -- top down (change to topdown)

this is from the top of my head
