• 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.

<On Key Actions in XML

I am using P3DV4.5. I have an aircraft with which I created most of the gauges in XML for FSX. A work well with P3D.

I am creating a home built cockpit and want to use a large keypad and a couple of Arduino boards with Mobiflight.

The keypad sends keystrokes to the Sim. I can use mostly P3D keypress controls. However, I want to send On Key input (using Tab+.....) to update multiple L:Vars per key combo. This would replace "Mouse Areas" in the selected gauges.

The examples mostly show updating K: type events. Can someone show how specifically to code key press to update several L:Vars with a keypress?

Never used <on key commands yet. Been using gauges since FS9. Please be specific. Most answers assume on is familiar wit the commands. The examples in the wiki are too general.

Maybe i don't understand your Question..
An example
I press "Z"

<!-- Key Z for TAXI Off -->
    <On Key="90">

<!-- NavMain_Listings.xml  **** Keyboard Input is ON -->

        0 (&gt;L:TILL_Control_On,bool)

        0 (&gt;L:TILL_TaxiSpeed_BT,bool)
