Data Monitor and removing unwanted LVARs

Post by Hazza » 09 Jan 2020, 21:23

Hi Connex,
Not sure if this is possible but I was trying to capture readings from specific LVAR (in this case for the MilViz KA350i) and wanted to NOT see a LOT of LVAR. Is it possible to be able to select multiple LVAR and remove them from monitoring with a single click (e.g. Clear Selected)? Or perhaps filter the view to only those LVAR that have had a data change in the last XX seconds and then be able to remove the ones you don't want?
Cheers

Harry

No way that I know of to remove multiple selections. You can remove individual entries.

You can save the data monitor variables list and manually edit it

There are no filters but I often use sort by value to help my look for activity

Yeah Daz, I had found those options but if possible and not TOO much effort it would be nice if my suggestions, or variant of, could be implemented. As you are well aware some aircraft have literally thousands of LVAR and even with saving a list this can be a balls-breaking effort for the next set (i.e. new list) of LVAR

Didn't quite finish my post...

So what I'm saying is if you click one Variable, then SHIFT + CLK on another Variable, all the highlighted values could be deleted by clicking on the "Remove" icon of any one of the selected Variables.

The other option is pretty self-explanatory (I think!!!)
Cheers

Data monitor is only really designed to look at the variables YOU specifically selected, so it’s doing exactly what you’ve asked it ;-)

Are you not better off using the event monitor to capture changing events? that’s what it’s for

Still the sort by activity would be useful I agree with you as would a block delete. Sorry didn’t mean to cut of your suggestion.

I do tend to switch monitors when looking for events I’m trying to capture a specific LVAR though

No probs, I will take whatever assistance anyone is willing to give but my thinking capacity at 2am is severely limited. I do switch between the two Monitors as well but unfortunately MilViz (I am working on their KA350i) use an EVENT LVAR that I don't seem to be able to catch in either Monitor for some reason. MilViz have not published (that I know of) a list of LVAR/EventID for public consumption. As an example pressing the MFD LSK1:

In LINDA it looks like this:
function B350i_PFD_L_LSK_1 ()
ipc.writeLvar("0x11000", 1)
ipc.control(69632)
ipc.sleep(200)
ipc.writeLvar("0x11000", 0)
DspShow ("PFD L", "LSK1")
end

In SPAD.next the equivalent is:
Set 0X11000 (LVAR) to 1
Set EVENT (LVAR) to 69632
Delay execution for 200 ms.
Set 0X11000 (LVAR) to 0

Both of these work the same as using the Mouse to click on LSK1 in the VC. However the only thing captured by the Monitors is in the Data Monitor and that only shows the 11000 LVAR. So it seems I may have to wait for MilViz to release their EVENTID/LVAR list, IF they ever do!

I find that the Event Monitor captures the the items that would be in the Sim Events.....LVARS for the most part do not show up there....Just like flipping switches in say a PMDG you have to use the LVAR Data to track it.

If you eliminate all of the "noisy" LVARS that spew out data then you are able to use the bottom Data monitor window to see changes when you press buttons and switches....Then you can sort out what your supposed to do :)...

I agree that having a mass Selection would be a useful item.

Yeah Les, unfortunately even when I turn off all the "noisy" LVARS I can't seem to track down what I need - which is the value for the EVENT in my set up or the "ipc.control" in LINDA.
