Is there any examples of doing this? As an example, I am trying to show/hide an overhead panel for a 206 when you click/touch on the red sticker on the main panel

Hi All,

Here is a cut down of my panel just to demonstrate a method I used. I don't know if this is the best method out there, but if worked for me :mrgreen:

Import the files from the zip and Load up the panel first. click the small clock and it will show the big clock. click the cross on the big clock then it will close.
This is for xplane plane although it may work with fsx.

What I did is just create virtual Air Manage buttons to show or hide the instruments. in the planel LUA code section this is where I put the button logic to determine what action to take.

Jason,
I have been messing with your panel to make one for FS2020 and in doing that I see how your hide/show works. I’m not trying to copy that for this panel but I will be looking at how it is done for my Mooney panel. I like the hide away compass.
I really think you did a great job on that Arrow panel.
