It 's the one in the panel for the Aerodesigns A320.
Below the slot for the value is a multifunction knob. This allows selection of either mm or inches. Above a preset altitude value it flashes STANDARD, to prompt you to make the change. Meanwhile, if you are below the transition level, it interacts with the adjacent PFD gauge. Within that gauge, as a small detail, is displayed the current altimeter barometric setting. If below TH, this value has displayed beneat QNH.. If you've set the standard value in the slot above, then QNH is replaced by STANDARD.

    One of the FS9 panels has just such a gauge. It indicates whether
