bmp files are there to show a pictorial background, the values are extracted 
from FS using an expression in brackets preceded by A:, then the variable name, 
then the units, plus an expression to format the output. You need to unravel 
the CAB file into individual gauges, alter the expression in the relevant 
gauge, and then re-assemble the CAB file. Prpobably not the easiest way to get 
into gauge design!

I do it another way. I create my own gauge from scratch, then add it to an 
existing panel. To learn how to do this you need a few spare hours and the SDK.

  Hi all,


  I want to try to alter the pressure display on the altimeter of my SF260 so 
it shows Mb and not In Hg.  I've found a bmp in the relevant cab file which is 
the numeric display as a strip.  Is it a simple case of replacing this strip 
with a Mb equivalent (obviously with the correct numbers in the equivalent In 
Hg position)?


  Can you tell this is the first time I've ever delved into gauge design!
