Hi Paul,
One coconut to you. When entered as SHIFT + ENTER 2 it works. Problem solved.

Err, it probably does relate to designers of gauges too. I allocated that to a butto and tried it. No effect on the cargo door but, watching in Spot View, it opened the main doors AND up popped a TCAS gauge as well.
I feel a headache coming on.

Hi Paul,
Would that then be assigned as   Shift  +  Enter  +   2               ?
If so I'll try that. Ta.
I've tried assigning a button to Tailhook Toggle, also Wings Fold Toggle but they didn't work, since I guess it depends what the designer assigned.

Looks as though my IP is playing silly b**gers again, I answered earlier but it appears to have disappeared into the ether that is Kingston Karoo space.

Anyway, try assigning Shift-E,2 to the button. It's usually the keystroke
for cargo doors.

Hi Frank,
I've used mouse click areas in a couple of my multipage gauges but I've
no idea how to assign an action to a keystroke. Once addicted to
GoFlight equipment the need to use mouseclicks becomes a source of
irritation. Unreasonable but true.

For a holiday brain teaser, for the .xml masochists amongst us, is it

I ask because there's an effective Cargo door press button gauge that opens, for instance, the rear cargo doors on the EMB170. It does the
   same thing with the luggage compartment doors on the Tobagos. It
   be neat to be able to open these from a spare Goflight button, as
   can be
   done with the main aircraft exits, by using GFConfig to assign a
   to Shift + E.

Hi Gerry,

I know how to watch for and act on a mouse click, but I don't know how
to monitor for key strokes, I think most of these are used by FS anyway.

For mouse clicks, you have to define an area of the gauge which is
"live", and then define the required action when the mouse is clicked.
So for example if you have a radio gauge with a standby button, you
define the button area as "hot", and when the mouse click is processed
you swap the live and standby frequencies.

Not sure if this is any use to you.

Frank T.
