Multi Panel's AutoThrottle/AltSel Knob Programming

Post by Mixdiver » 22 Jan 2020, 23:23

I'm looking for programming advise on how to toggle the Altitude Set (laminar/c90/autopilot/switch/altsel100) push/pull knob on the dash using the Logitech Multi Panel's Auto Throttle switch. I've programmed the auto throttle switch to increase/decrease altitude 1000' when switch is OFF and 100' ON just like the Altitude Set knob but I can't command the knob in/out yet to correspond with the multi panel's switch. Any advise?

Systems in use: X Plane 11, King Air C90B Blackhawk, SPAD.neXT 0.9.6.54, DataRefTool, FlyWithLua

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

What does the push/pull do?

The knob/dial on the dash changes the preselect altitude increments either 100' or 1000'. "In" I believe was 100' increments, Out for 1000'.

On a "somewhat" unrelated question, I'm trying to see the exact changes taking place when I push/pull the knob through the Event Monitor but every time I press Start, the SPAD.neXT software crashes. Any ideas to remedy this?

I've got Event Monitor to stop crashing while reviewing YouTube video "Sim-P3Dv4.5 Spad.Next Switch Panel C208B". I wasn't aware of how to delete/stop the event that caused the crash. Now back to the original programming problem...

I no longer have crashing issues as mentioned earlier but would love some help on the original question. Also how do I stop the Auto Throttle from advancing when toggling the Auto Throttle switch on the Autopilot panel even through there's no auto throttle on the C90B? Any direction is greatly appreciated.
