Re: Automized popup panels using panel script

The flight sim must be running for the inter-instrument communication to work. I found that out the hard way. :)

Automized popup panels using panel script

Hi, for my 737 overhead instrument project I am in a phase where I need an efficient way to use the instruments while still changing instruments and adding new instruments. I decided to make a panel script and a separate instrument, so that I can activate and de-activate other panels from the select...

Re: PMDG 737-700 instrument collection

Robert, thank you for your feedback. Yes I am aware of the annunciator problem. I think I have mentioned it in the info for the instrument. I did not find working so called Lvars for that.

Re: Panel script not starting

Ah, that was very helpful, thank you. It is not really easy with the panel interface. Because I made the panel on the create/edit panel tab from the one on the home tab. And yet afterwards I have to create a new panel, this time from the home tab and selecting the very panel that was created origina...

Re: PMDG 737-700 instrument collection

Hello 737 pilots, I continued working on the PMDG instruments. They have a different maturity level so to speak. In total it is 19 instruments.

Re: Multiple panels using one Panel script

Hi Tony, thank you for your reply. Doing inter instrument communication in panel scripts, I did not think of that. Maybe I try. I think I do not fully understand the concept of the tab create/edit panels. Is it to start multiple panels at once? If so which one is on top? I cannot reorder them. And t...
