Re: 3-way switch without Knobster

Hi, By default AM will not apply the knobster focus to anything less than a 3 way switch so normal up/dn or left/right toggle switches do not need to use knobster. Note that you can force these to give knobster focus in code. Dials and switches of 3 ways or more will always take knobster focus. The ...

Re: General Helper Library

Hi, There is a Lua file in the AM directory tree where the current helpers such as var_cap(), var_round() etc are located. I suppose they could be added there but they may get overwritten during an update. I wouldn’t do this. It’s best to just include the helpers you create in a lib file and include...

Re: Dynon Skyview

Anthony, I started a full blown Skyview system with the additional control panels, VPX integration etc all based on the real instrument but i put on hold due to lack of navigation features. I may get round to picking it up again one day but certainly not anytime soon. I don’t have the Panthera but f...

Re: Using Air Manager with A2A Aircraft

Hi,

It shouldn’t be a problem as long as all the necessary variables are available. A2A have a published list so it’s a good place to start.

Re: Arduino Uno not connecting

If hw_connected() returns true then the device is connected. So yes it can be used to check the connection. Please define a 'device' in relation to a complete board connection ? (as opposed to looking at individual ancillary connections to the device). That would be informative. Device is irrelevan...

Try the hw_connected() function.
I dont believe that is for the actual connection of the device !, it is for the ancillary items.

Re: Arduino Uno not connecting

I have had this working on Uno and Mega, I have tried the demo sketch now and it works, however loading my sketch does not, I have checked all the message port code and it is identical to the demo but it does not work. Is there a critical time between ticks?? Clearly it isn’t identical else it woul...

Re: Arduino Uno not connecting

Hi JohnF,

A blank sketch won't work as there needs to be the basic's in the Aurduino to communicate with Air Manager. As suggested you can try the example sketch on the wiki or perhaps try watching the message port tutorial video (linked in my signature below).
