    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to figure out how its possible to make an interface with buttons run inside FS, sort of like a gauge. I program in VB.net and I've been able to create an external application communicate with FS via Fsuipc.

    My goal now is to let that program run inside FS, so people can use it while in a flight etc.. Is it possible make Vb.net program run inside FS, or at least convert it to a Gauge file?

    Thanks in advance,;)

    I am a .NETer myself, except I do C#. Like you I have been able to write external applications that communicate with FS using C# (there is an excellent library in the simflight.com forums.

    Unfortunately the only way you can get something to run inside FS is if you write it in C++ (ugh! makes me puke) and while I have written millions of line of code in C and C++ I just don't care with that sort of programming anymore.

    I think you best choice is to program an XML gauge or program a C++ gauge where I think #1 is the best.
