Thread: moving pop up window

  1. #1

    Default moving pop up window

    Hiya guys...
    I have an FMC (isg1 SMITHS) that is currently in 'position=2' (top right) in my panel.cfg.
    I would like to move it 2 inches left. I know it can be dragged to that position....but if it can
    be done permanently so whenever I hit Shift+8,it will be in the new position.
    Can this be done ???
    Thanks for any help.

    What does the panel.cfg look like showing the window for the FMC?

    Enough is shown! Is this FMC a download from this site? I'll look around and see if I can download it and look to adjust position. What aircraft are you using?

    I see the FMS is payware. I might try with a freeware FMC.

    Just looking at the freeware Honeywell FMC and it's [window.xx] in the panel.cfg:
    Looking at the numbers in red, this is how positioning is done without the standard positions. You would use your numbers for size_mm=, gauge=,window_size-ratio=, and adjusting the numbers for window_pos=, also window_size=, also everything in gauge00=.

    Just trying to think about things...Maybe pos=2 is a starting point and window_pos= is a fine tune adjustment??

    [WindowXX]
    Background_color=16,16,16
    size_mm=325,512
    window_size_ratio=1.000
    position=0
    visible=0
    ident=GPS_PANEL // change if you keep your GPS window
    window_size= 0.255, 0.475
    window_pos= 0.745, 0.520

    gauge00=HoneywellFMC!fmc, 0,0,325,512
