Here's a bit of code for an Altitude Alerter which might be suitable for
cobbling..

<Gauge Name="Altitude AP Annunciator" Version="1.0">
<Image Name="Altitude_Anun_Background.bmp" ImageSizes="10,10"/>

<Element>
        <Select>
        <Value>(L:Preselected Altitude, percent) 1000 - s5</Value>
        </Select>
</Element>
<Element>
        <Select>
        <Value>(L:Preselected Altitude, percent) 1000 + s6</Value>
        </Select>
</Element>
<Element>
        <Select>
        <Value>(L:Preselected Altitude, percent) 250 - s7</Value>
        </Select>
</Element>
<Element>
        <Select>
        <Value>(L:Preselected Altitude, percent) 250 + s8</Value>
        </Select>
</Element>

<Element>
        <Position X="0" Y="0"/>
        <Visible>(A:Indicated Altitude,feet) l5 &gt; (A:Indicated
Altitude,feet) l7 &lt; (L:Altitude Preselectmode, bool) &amp;&amp;
&amp;&amp;</Visible>
        <Image Name="Altitude_Anun_Lamp.bmp" Bright="Yes"
ImageSizes="10,10"/>
</Element>

<Element>
        <Position X="0" Y="0"/>
        <Visible>(A:Indicated Altitude,feet) l6 &lt; (A:Indicated
Altitude,feet) l8 &gt; (L:Altitude Preselectmode, bool) &amp;&amp;
&amp;&amp;</Visible>
        <Image Name="Altitude_Anun_Lamp.bmp" Bright="Yes"
ImageSizes="10,10"/>
</Element>

<Mouse>
      <Tooltip>Autopilot Altitude Alerter</Tooltip>
</Mouse>
</Gauge>

Isn't the idea similar to that already used by the user defined Decision
Height gauges? If so it would allow for the geographical variations in
TH, of which Bones spake.
