FSX Cowl Flaps Gauge Help

Hi all,

Sorry to be a pain yet again I just cant seem to grasp XML although I am getting better. Just trying to do a cowl flaps gauge
separate for each side. I modified and existing gauge but it is not showing up in FSX any help would be greatly appreciated.

Code


Back ground just black so should be invisible


First Gauge BMP 0% opened


Last Gauge BMP 100% opened


The other bmps are just different movements of switch but happy to post if needed

Thanks a million sorry I thought I was getting the hang of this apparently not grrrr

Cheers
Matt
 
It would help if you would paste the code into the message instead of doing that wierd stuff with an image.

Couple of things to try;

1. Use
XML:
A:RECIP ENG COWL FLAP POSITION:1,Percent
2. Get rid of all those spurious minus signs.
