Yep -  that is an FS value that can be trapped in XML. It would read the  same
value as shown in the top display using SHIFT + Z.

Basically  XML is flexible enough to create a gauge showing almost any FS
parameter  you want. Some examples at random are:

TURN COORDINATOR BALL
SIM ON  GROUND
GROUND ALTITUDE
DELTA HEADING RATE
GYRO DRIFT ERROR
PLANE  HEADING DEGREES GYRO
WISKEY COMPASS INDICATION DEGREES
MAGVAR
TOTAL  WEIGHT
DECISION HEIGHT
RADIO HEIGHT
AIRCRAFT WIND Z
AIRCRAFT WIND  Y
AIRCRAFT WIND X
STANDARD ATM TEMPERATURE
TOTAL AIR  TEMPERATURE
SEA LEVEL PRESSURE
BAROMETER PRESSURE
AMBIENT WIND  Z
AMBIENT WIND Y
AMBIENT WIND X
AMBIENT WIND DIRECTION
AMBIENT  WIND VELOCITY
AMBIENT PRESSURE
AMBIENT TEMPERATURE
AMBIENT  DENSITY

and so it goes on. These "A:Vars" run to 920 separate  variables!

What you do with the variable is up to you. They can be  displayed as simple
text or you can (if up to it) design a proper gauge to  show the result.

Hi Bones,
 
Is this a good subject for one of your excellent tutorials? Sounds like we  
could use this info.
as the basis for some useful guages, even if they just appear as  text.
