Hi Community, I would like to know, how to send an continous update for example to the DispALT() function.My problem is, that I would like to send an special offset of the Wilco Airbus to the MCP Panel. I know that it is possible to set the offset at the InitDsp () function, but then it has just been set at the initialisation. I would like to have a continous update of the offset at the display every 5 seconds or realtime. If I update the MCP Display whenever the MCP ALT Know is turned, the display doesn't work properly. I this it is too much offset read and display updates. Any ideas? Regards,pero

This is the only way that task should be done. What do you mean by "the display doesn't work properly"?If it hangs then you can insert additional ipc.sleep(50) after DspALT() to give it time to update.
If I update the MCP Display whenever the MCP ALT Know is turned, the display doesn't work properly. I this it is too much offset read and display updates.

hi development,how can i write a string into die HDG or SPD Dispay? I already read the FAQ and found out, that it is possible to use strings with the functions DspSPDs(str) and DspHDGs(str).I use MCP Combo I. Will it be possible to use strings either with MCP Combo I?I would like to write "---" into HDG and SPD Display, if FCU is on managed mode.

Another day - another question:Sometimes my MCP display show a star symbol beside SPD or HDG (" * ") if I press a MCP button (all buttons are changed to specific actions).Is it possible to switch this star on and off. I am working on a new version of a Wilco Profile and would like to use it to display managed or selected mode. Otherwise I would like to work withount this star, because it doesn't look good at the display. I use MCP1.
