    Whiskey Compass: a question

    I want to use this gauge in a plane I'm building, but the strip shows too low. How do I change that? Is it even possible?


    The code:
    <Gauge Name="kompas" Version="1.0">
    <Image Name="kompas_background.bmp"/>

    <!-- ======================= Compass Strip ======================= -->
    <Element>
    <Position X="19" Y="14"/>
    <MaskImage Name="kompas_window.bmp">
    <Axis X="40" Y="0"/>
    </MaskImage>
    <Image Name="kompas_strip.bmp">
    <Axis X="167" Y="0"/>
    <Nonlinearity>
    <Item Value="0" X="300" Y="0"/>
    <Item Value="360" X="35" Y="0"/>
    </Nonlinearity>
    </Image>
    <Shift>
    <Value>(A:Wiskey compass indication degrees,degrees) dnor</Value>
    <Failures>
    <GAUGE_KOMPAS Action="Freeze"/>
    </Failures>
    </Shift>
    <Shift>
    <Value Minimum="-15" Maximum="15">(A:ATTITUDE INDICATOR PITCH DEGREES,degrees) /-/</Value>
    <Scale Y="1.0"/>
    <Nonlinearity>
    <Item Value=" 15" X="0" Y="-26"/>
    <Item Value=" 0" X="0" Y="0"/>
    <Item Value="-15" X="0" Y="26"/>
    </Nonlinearity>
    </Shift>


    <Rotate>
    <Value Minimum="-30" Maximum="30">(A:Turn coordinator ball,degrees) </Value>
    <Delay DegreesPerSecond="30" />
    </Rotate>




    </Element>

    <!-- ======================= Tick Marks ========================= -->
    <Element>
    <Position X="59" Y="16"/>
    <Image Name="kompas_line.bmp"/>
    </Element>

    <!-- ======================= Shadow ============================= -->
    <Element>
    <Position X="0" Y="0"/>
    <Image Name="kompas_shadow.bmp" Alpha="Yes"/>
    </Element>


    <!-- ======================= Reflection ========================= -->
    <Element>
    <Position X="0" Y="0"/>
    <Image Name="kompas_reflection.bmp" Alpha="Yes"/>
    </Element>

    I meant too high. Mustn't post things just before bed-time!

    Hello Cees
    I'm not too familiar with XML gauges, so not sure that it has to be done, but you can try to increase the Y value:
    <Element>
    <Position X="19" Y="14"/>

    Have a nice day, cheers

    Thanks Martin. As they say: asking a question is answering that same question. I found a tutorial (simple) that explains xml gauge programming. And the value that must be increased is the other Y value:

    <Element>
    <Position X="19" Y="14"/>
    <MaskImage Name="kompas_window.bmp">
    <Axis X="40" Y="0"/>

    I would be happy to know more about XML gauges, can you please send me the link to this tuto?

    Cheers

    Many thanks Cees
    I dropped a quick eye on it, and it seems I'll find there an answer on how to do a 3D compass, reacting to pitch and bank, lovely!

    Cheers
    Martin
