Hi Bill,

Their is no easy way right know to have the PFD, the GPS and the flight plan pages visible at the same time.
It should not be to difficult to create a papget for that, but still needs to be done, since none of the existing ones can do that. I'm not sure it is the best way, but it might be the easiest way for non-expert (assuming you know a little of Ocaml....). Look at for more info about adding a new papget.
The last option is to make an Xwindow (or something providing a window id) program that display what you want and embed it in a plugin type papget like this or in the GCS like this

Hi again,

sorry, didn't read that properly and just wanted to quickly answer this before leaving the lab....

As you probably saw, the PFD and the GPS are pages that get added to the live view of a specific aircraft. So while it should be possible to "just" add these to a different container instead of the standard pages, they still need to be linked to to update them.

Also it looks to me like the papgets only work if you only have one aircraft and are currently not usable when you have several as you can't specify the aircraft id for them.
E.g. if you use a goto button papget with multiple aircrafts you would end up sending the command to all aircrafts.

So it seems to me like this would need quite a bit of refactoring and the functionality to listen to a specific ac id would be desirable anyway.
But at this point I have to hand of to Gautier, our remaining OCaml geek ;-)

Cheers, Felix

so you just want to change the layout? It is specified in an xml file which can be passed as a parameter to the GCS to use it. You can just put the map2d, strips, alarms, etc. in different rows/colmums of the layout.

Papgets are the gauges, buttons, etc. you can add to the GCS. Simple ones can just be dragged in, for more control add them to your layout xml file.

Feel free to improve the descriptions of this on the wiki ;-)

Cheers, Felix

Hi Bill,
If you get it working like your picture I`m very interested to know how you did it.
I really would like something similar!
kind regards Bart remes

Hi all,

I'm trying to change the PFD & GPS emplacement to be able to see them at all time during the flights but the only "results" I get for now are compilation errors... I guess the best thing would be to create a papget for each one of them and then to be able to move them around using the gcs configuration file (xml). 

I attached an image of what I think would be great.

Does anyone could guide me on how to create those papgets?

Thanks, have a nice day!
