Try this.. <Gauge Name="Heading digital" Version="1.0"> <Element> <Visible>(A:Circuit general panel on, bool)</Visible> <Element> <Text X="32" Y="16" Bright="Yes" Length="3" Font="Arial" Color="#00C000" Adjust="Center" VerticalAdjust="Center" Multiline="No" Fixed="No"> <String>%(360 (A:Plane heading degrees gyro, degrees) dnor near d 0 == ?)%!03d!</String> </Text> </Element> </Element> <Mouse> <Tooltip ID="TOOLTIPTEXT_HEADING_INDICATOR_HEADING"/> </Mouse> <copyright>(c)2003 Nick Pike [n.pike@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]</copyright> </Gauge> That was taken from the c26 panel. You don't HAVE to put these in a CAB file - placing the bitmaps and the XML file in the Gauge folder also works (or in the Panel folder for the aircraft itself) - but you soon forget what these loose files are from. CAB's just make it tidier. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of FrankTurley@xxxxxxx Sent: 18 August 2006 15:02 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: FSX Demo Now wrestling with a digital compass, I think the variable is plane heading degrees gyro, but it doesn't seems to like the ,radians - will try switching to ,degrees later when SWMBO gives me a break!
