custom dialog position

Postby gkick » Sun Jun 09, 2019 5:04 pm

Hi,

how can one change x y for a dialog that is not yet in the sim/gui/dialogs tree, e.g. position the instruments dialog off center ? And dialog related is there a way to place a tooltip on a button?

Thanks

Easy:
<x> and <y> tags under the top under <PropertyList>
I'm not 100% positive if they scale properly throughout different sizes.

Kind Regards,
Josh

thanks Josh, thats fine if its a local dialog but does not seem to work if its one under the root gui/dialogs which you do not want to modify.

Not possible.
But you can copy the dialog locally into the gui/dialogs folder of your aircraft, and it will overwrite the sim.

Kind Regards,
