Then I have a different question.
Is it possible to assign a command to a knobster button (using knobXP) that would only change the mode between ALT / VS ???

Hi,


Not sure if such a command exists in X-plane.

You can search available X-plane commands here:

Yes there are, but unfortunately two different commands:

sim / autopilot / set_ott_seldisp_ALT_VVI_vvi

sim / autopilot / set_ott_seldisp_ALT_VVI_alt



I understand that in this case there is no chance that this could work on the principle of switching functions.

Then still your left and right commands would have to be some kind of generic thing, so that's not gonna work. You might be able to create something custom using Flywithlua if you're able to script your own commands.

But you wouldn't get any feedback about which mode you have selected, so a bit confusing maybe.

But is there any possibility to assign a custom lua script command later to a Knobster button (with the command: "button_released_cmd": "..................... ............... ") ???

Yes, Yes, Yes. :-)
Managed to do what I wanted with a very simple Lua script.
Then I assigned the created command in lua script to the Knobster button.
Many thanks to everyone for valuable tips and help. :-)
