Question about CDU brightness control via Lua scripting


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am using FlyWithLua for my own scripting of certain functionalities. I've tried to use the commands "CL650/CDU/1/brt_up" and "CL650/CDU/1/brt_down" from within Lua scripting, but sending these commands does not have any effect at all.

I can, however, assign the CDU brightness control to joystick buttons or keyboard shortcuts from the respective X-Plane configuration UI, and CDU brightness control works.

What could be the issue? Are "CL650/CDU/1/brt_up" and "CL650/CDU/1/brt_down" the correct commands after all? 
I have many other CL650 commands that I use in my scripts, and they work just fine.

Thanks

At a guess, these commands have to be held down for multiple frames to see any change. They weren't really made to be called from scripts. You can look at using command_begin/end, not command_once, and maybe you can figure out a way to do what you're trying to do (whatever that is).
