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.

    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.
