Hello @Cuantreau I've added the events you are asking for to the Mobiflight Contribution website  around the same time you created this topic 😉

PMDG_B737-7_FUEL_CUT_OFF_LEVER1_DN#(L:switch_688_73X) 100 div 0 == if{ 68801 (>K:ROTOR_BRAKE) }
PMDG_B737-7_FUEL_CUT_OFF_LEVER1_UP#(L:switch_688_73X) 100 div 1 == if{ 68801 (>K:ROTOR_BRAKE) }
PMDG_B737-7_FUEL_CUT_OFF_LEVER2_DN#(L:switch_689_73X) 100 div 0 == if{ 68901 (>K:ROTOR_BRAKE) }
PMDG_B737-7_FUEL_CUT_OFF_LEVER2_UP#(L:switch_689_73X) 100 div 1 == if{ 68901 (>K:ROTOR_BRAKE) }

just add them to your ...\FSUIPC7\events.txt and voilà ! also,  if my undesrtanding is good, they will be automatically included with the next FSUIPC update.

In my P3D 4.5 PMDG 737, I have a spreadsheet that has to control codes for all the PMDG 737 events.  Unfortunately I can't get them to work in msfs 737. In P3D I could either use a toggle switch or on/off switch I.E. anti coalition lights event ID 69757.  It works great there, only if they would work in msfs.

Maybe the control codes have changed. Check the documentation for the MSFS version, or check the MobiFlight hubhob site (https://hubhop.mobiflight.com/) for available presets - there are currently 270 available. However, they won't be available in the current events.txt file as this is out of date. I have attached the latest event file - use this to replace the one in your current FSUIPC7 installation: events.txt

With that updated event file, there are three presets for this:
    PMDG_B737-7_LIGHTS_ANTI_COLLISION_OFF
    PMDG_B737-7_LIGHTS_ANTI_COLLISION_ON
    PMDG_B737-7_LIGHTS_ANTI_COLLISION_TOGGLE
Looking at the preset code, you can use the Rotor Brake control (event id 66587) with a parameter of 12401 (if you don't want to use the preset directly).

Yes, same thing for the autobrake, can't map them as i did in p3d.

Did you check the SDK, or list the lvars to see what is available? Controls for the MSFS version of the PMFG 737 may not be the same as used by the P3D version.
There doesn't seem to be much for the auto-brake on the MF HubHop preset list at the moment, just one that shows the following lvar for the AutoBrake Disarm Annunciator State: L:switch_459_73X

John, MSFS or PMDG's SDK? Thanks

PMDG custom controls should be documented in the PMDG SDK...maybe in the header file...I have still not seen this for the MSFS version of the PMDG 737. Hoping to have this soon.

I don't think they released it yet, I'm afraid.

adanso, couldn't get them to work, I added to the events .txt file in fsuipc folder, but shouldn't there be an .evt file for that to work in the EventFiles folder? thanks

Nope, suffise to add them correctly to the event.txt file then (re)start FSUIPC, that will make them available with the prefix 'Preset:****"

Edit: or simply use the file shared by @John Dowson earlier, it does allready contain these events ..

any direct way to download the file file from the hubhob site instead of using MobiFlight application ?

There is an Export presets button at the bottom of the search grid - I presume you can use that, although I have never tried.

You shouldn't modify the events.txt file, as ant changes will get overridden when you next install FSUIPC7. If you want to add events, use the myevents.txt file. However, you can just use the update events.txt file I posted earlier, as suggested by @adnanso. This will be included in the next FSUIPC7 update, hopefully tomorrow but maybe the day after.

Event files are different - these are for custom events. You could use these, but you would then also need to install the MobiFlight WASM module which handles these. Presets are an alternative that are executed by the FSUIPC WASM module.

Thanks buddy, already tried that way, didn't work for me. I'll try with John's file.

I 'll do a new post but I can extract ipc.control parameters from the LINDA PMDG action.lua (and keep the nameing),
and then don't know how to go about it 🙂 PDMG rotor brake (PMDG_EVT 66587)
f.i.
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_VNAV    38601
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_LVLCHG    39101
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_HDGSEL    39201
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_LNAV    39701
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_VORLOC    39601
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_APP    39301
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_ALTHLD    39401
PMDG_GLSD_MCP_AP_VS    39501

Are you sure that isn't for the P3D PMDG 737?

As @adnanso pointed out in this post, you should look in this file for the MSFS Rotor Brake control parameters: 
     ..\pmdg-aircraft-737\Documentation\PMDG\PMDG_NG3_VC_700.xml

Does this require any additional tools to work ? am I missing something 😄

I have the PMDG and FSUIPC running, I have set the preset as above yet the control doesnt move. If I however set it via the rotorbrake fuction than the parameter it works. Do I need an extra program or something to have it work with the preset ? @John Dowson@adnanso

You need to have the WASM installed and enabled to use presets - check the Advanced User guide, un the WASM section.
If the WASM is enabled correctly, you should see the menu entries active under the Add-ins->WASM menu - try listing lvars to confirm the WASM is installed and connected.
Note that you need an aircraft loaded and ready-to-fly (i.e. not in the MSFS menu). Also check that you are using the latest version of FSUIPC7, v7.3.4 - if not, update.
