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. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of FrankTurley@xxxxxxx Sent: 19 December 2004 11:23 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: Gross Weight In a message dated 19/12/2004 10:46:19 GMT Standard Time, bones@xxxxxxx writes: Are there any other values you would like including whilst I am working = on it? I can ad almost any FS parameter - IAS, TAS, ground speed, empty = weight, fuel weight, zero fuel weight etc etc.. Bones, Does that mean you could make a guage to indicate the wind direction and speed? Frank T.
