Is it possible to make the EFIS Captains side work with FO side?

Most things are possible with AM but you need to be a bit more specific.

As stated recently by @Ralph,
there's currently no way to access user properties on Android or iPad
I will think in other manner and trying to redesign the way it works for switching between CAPT and FO
and Yes, I really missed this important concern for both Android and iPad instrument running context

Just remembering, I have also to perform this new adjustment in the Z_2D_XP CDU/FMC (CAPT & FO)

As Gilles said the tablet apps do do not have support for user properties so the user cannot select the intended choices of the instrument developer. The desktop version is the way to go for a sim that needs both.

I've updated the EFIS Control
it's working this way : we can now switch between the CAPT or FO side "on the fly" while the AM instrument is running, by clicking on left or right lower corner, then the label will switch from "CAPT" on the lower left corner to "FO" on the lower right corner or the reverse way
Depending on the selection we can act either on the CAPT or FO PFD and MFD using pre selected side

I will have a look also on the Button Array pre-selection VS Direct Button pre-selection for hardware input as I don't remember where I left this addition
Then I will submit this new release tomorrow

Initial state :
Z_2D_XP_EFIS_SideSwitching_01.jpg

Range changed on CAPT side, TERR enabled and infos added on ND :
Z_2D_XP_EFIS_SideSwitching_02.jpg

Then switched to FO side and switched EFIS Mode to PLN :

Bear in mind that these updates will take a while before they are available on the iPad App.

Nice work Gilles.

Thanks Tony

Not sure, maybe it could be OK if I have the time to submit before @Corjan make the compilation of the next AM 3.7 for iPad ...
Though the OP is using Android and it should be easier
