Refreshed by a walk amongst visiting bikes and bikers, I engaged remaining few grey cells and......did a Yahoo search.

```
```
The exact question had been asked on a sim-outhouse forum. The neccessary section of the line, which has my digital gauge working, in agreement with an existing analogue unit, is:
```
(A:TURB ENG MAX TORQUE PERCENT:1, percent)

So the full gauge .xml file now reads

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Gauge Name="GW_WIND" Version="1.0">
<Image Name="GW_WIND.bmp"/>

<Element>
<Position X="45" Y="15"/>
```
<Text X="110" Y="80" Length="40" Font="quartz" Color="#FF0000" VerticalAdjust="Center">
```           <String>%TORQUE %        %</String>
</Text>
</Element>

<Element>
<Position X="260" Y="15"/>
```
<Text X="110" Y="80" Length="40" Font="quartz" Color="#FFFF00" VerticalAdjust="Center"> <String>%((A:TURB ENG MAX TORQUE PERCENT:1,percent))%!03d! </String>
```      </Text>
</Element>

</Gauge>

The forum is now in my Favourites

identical to the last you posted..
```The string needs two values - the variable and the unit of measurement.
These should be separated by a comma.

Examples are:

((A:Turb eng2 N1, percent) abs)
(A:Eng1 manifold pressure, inHg)
(A:Prop1 RPM, rpm)

I don't have the list of A: variables here so I can only assume torque is

((A:ENG1 TORQUE, PERCENT) abs)

Progress!

The line now reads <String>%((A:ENG1 TORQUE PERCENT,))%!03d! </String>

The gauge is now alive but the reading, with thrust lever at idle is  76169.

Should there be a comma between TORQUE and PERCENT? It's normally A VAR,
UNIT for this line so I presume you are asking for torque to be displayed
```
```as
```
```percent rather than a linear value.

```
In the Epic's Glass displays, there's no readout for the single engined turboprop's torque. Although the Prop RPM is displayed, it's too small to be legible.
```
```
So, I decided to make a new gauge for each, based upon one I made some time ago, for throttle position. The PROP RPM gauge is OK but the Torque gage displays but only as unchanging TORQUE 000
```
```
Below is the text content of the .xml gauge. Any ideas on how I need to change it will be overwhelmingly gratefully received!
