• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

XMLTOOLS 2.01: XML expansion module for FSX Version 2.01

This module contains a group of C++ classes aimed to provide extra functions to XML gauges.

Now including LOGGER file management class by Robbie McElrath.

Some of these classes are in fact development tools for XML programmers while others were planned to enhance what is currently available for XML panel’s development.

The objective in this case is to associate different C++ callback functions in a single library (.dll) that is loaded by FS at startup, so they are available to any panel without the need of adding individual C++ gauges and/or modules to do the task. Future versions of XMLTools might include sound, advanced graphics and any other specific functionality users may come up with and request.

A group of example and utility gauges are also provided with this release as a guide on how to properly make XML code interact with each one of the module classes.

XMLTools classes:

Included in v2.01:

XMLVARS v2.0: a class to handle custom variables, including strings, in single/array format.
LOCALVARS v1.0: a class to manage data from local (L) variables actives in the current flight.
XMLEVENTS v1.1: a class that enhances the management of standard and custom events.
SIMVARS v1.1: a class that enables direct writing of specific aircraft (A) variables.
XMLTABLES v1.0: a class used to extract values from nonlinear/multicolumn tables.
XMLKEYS v1.0: a class that enables custom key events.
LOGGER v2.0: Robbie McElrath’s class for handling file I/O using XML code.
