my name is Matthias and I'm trying to build a little simplified version of a hardware ATR72 cockpit. I would like to switch LEDs on the panel in correlation to the status of the FS2004 panel system, so I need to read the data from the software (I'm using a commercial ATR72 add on aircraft).
The good news is that the developer of that aircraft allowed me to use a C++ header file which defines all panel variables and was specially written to allow an access. The bad news is that I know a good amount of Delphi, but my C programming skills are very bad (just like my English ?!).
I tried to combine the C++ Header file with some example programs from the FS2004 panel SDK and with fs2004menu (a small dll example which generates an entry in FS2004 main menu bar), compiled with Visual C 2008 Express, but those examples are written in C, and the ATR header file makes heavy use of the type 'bool', so it must be a C++ file.
How can I bring it together ?
Are there code examples in FS2004 programming in C++ ?
I'm afraid without help or working example code I will never solve this problem ...
