FSUIPC7 reading gates?

I am developing an program to detect gates.

What do you mean by this?

FSUIPC does not scan scenery files to extract gate and parking positions. However, these can be extracted from the files produced by the MakeRunways program - see the  Useful additional programs section.

For gate information assigned to AI aircraft, this should be available in the TCAS DATA2 offset area at 0xD040. However, this offset area has not yet been checked/verified and may not be available, best to check.

Ready gates for example to detect if they are at a certain gate. Or basically readying the gates of an airport from MFS. I understand that the gates are different from P3D where there in MFS, the gates will be in numbers

Sorry, but I cannot understand what you are trying to say...(google translate?).
Gate information is part of the (airport) scenery files. FSUIPC doesn't do anything with these. However, as I said, we provide an additional program called MakeRunwys, which extracts runway (and gate) information and provides text files so that these can be read by other programs. Why don't yo take a look at that.

Otherwise, I am really not sure what you are asking. Maybe you could explain by an example?
