« on: February 03, 2019, 04:13:06 PM »
Hi.

If anyone have suceeded interfacing the Flight Control Panel on the Zibo 737 in X-Plane 11, please let me know.
Cant seem to find any datarefs or commands for that panel.

Yepp, but the toggleswitches are not writable. Just for read, and i cant find any command for the switches.

I might suspect that i need to override some dataref aswell to be able to change the switches.

Ok, i have got this sorted out.
I really dont like Commands.

Now i have to read a "readonly" value and check the position and then execute the Command.

Manipulating a dataref takes out the extra read variable.

And then add the Switch Covers, they need to be opened all the time, otherwise i cannot change the switch.

Hm... Messy but it works really good, just dont like this approach.

Ok, Commands are just plain and simple stupid.

With a dataref that holds the threeposition switch it is oneliner to manipulate it.

With the Commands you need to reference the position value.

The Flight Control Panel is pretty much a pain to implement this way.

Personally, that's why X-Plane is harder to interface with.
But, nobody said this was an easy Hobby LOL Otherwise everyone would be doing it :)
Keep working on it.  You will get it :)
