Don't bother getting the FS Gauges SDK as it hardly touches XML coding. It
still contains lots of data for C++ as used in the old GAU files.
 
There are a few tutorials around now - try looking for those by Arne
Bartels, either in AVSIM or FreeFlightDesign.

Hi Bones,
 
Thanks for the pointer in the right direction, I finally came up with the
following - 
 
<Text X="32" Y="16" Bright="Yes" Length="3" Font="Arial" Color="#FFFFFF"
 Adjust="Center" VerticalAdjust="Center" Multiline="No" Fixed="No">
                   <String>%((A:Plane Heading Degrees Gyro,
degrees))%!3.0f</String>
               </Text>
 
Its a bit simpler than yours, and I changed to the white colour as it stands
out better than the grey.
 
It works ok, I guess I need to get into XML a bit more to understand exactly
what's going on, but at least I now have a digital compass.
 
Thanks again,
 
Frank T.
