The Boeing dials are CAB files so you could lift the XML file and plonk it
into a CAB of your own creation along with a bitmap from the F100.

Remind me - does the F100 have a working autobrake or just a static dial on
the panel? If it has a working autobrake why is it necessary to replace it
with the Boeing code?

I've now got the autobrake code from the B737 so all I need is bitmaps of
something you fancy in the F100. All I need is the "plate" showing the AB
panel markings and a reasonable bitmap of the moving switch.

You've got another coconut!
Odd; I could get it to react to Increase Autobrake Setting but not to
reduce. I can get it to actuate reduce by doing as you suggested. Apart
from the F100, which is my heavy metal of choice, for the FPI sessions.
I can substitute the controlable Boeing unit but it looks naff, by
comparison. Pity I cant get the F100 bitmap to be used by the Boeing
gauge. Repeat after me "I mustn't get diverted down yet another alley".
