How to program a switch with guard

Recommended Posts

What FS, version of FSUIPC and aircraft are you using?
There are no standard controls for switch guards. You should look into any available lvars, or if its an add-on that comes with its own SDK, there may be custom or rotor brake controls. For MSFS aircraft, there could be hvars or more complex calculator code. As I say, it depends on the FS, aircraft and version of FSUIPC.

Only flying PMDG 737 NGx and NGXu with hardware cockpit.

For the PMDG:
    - check available custom controls (see the SDK documentation)
    - check available lvars - there is an DSUIPC control to do this which you can assign to a button or key press. The lvars and their values are listed in the FSUIPC6.log file
       If any look applicable, you can try changing their value (using a macro or lua script) to see if they have any affect
    - ask on the PMDG support forum to see if it is possible to control the switch guards externally
