Hi, I am trying to allocate a switch/PB in FSUIPC4 to bring up and reset the Flight map in FSX. I can find the Flight Map control (66432) and activate it OK. But I cannot get it to return to cockpit panel view. (I am currently using the DC3 default A/C.) I have tried all the view reset/snap to panels etc, to no avail, and the mouse macro seems not to be available?

Not a serious issue for me, but one I would like do as a PB feature. All other controls via FSUIPC4 work fine - great product. I am currently using BODNAR control cards.

Many thanks, and keep up the excellent work.

Mouse macros are only supported for aircraft panels and switches. The Flight Map is a build in Window.

I've had a look for you. There is a Panel ID for the Flight Map ("HELPID_GAUGE_FLIGHT_MAP" = xAB8F) so i tried manipulating it using the PANEL_ID_OPEN and PANEL_ID_CLOSE controls with that ID as parameter -- to no avail I'm afraid. Looks like the only way is to use the mouse to click on the Close button.
