Hi AlbEagle

Hope you mean Offsets 0300 and 0302 ( Vor1 DME Distance and Speed)

It´s normaly no Problem to Display - - - . As you think you need the Compare field....
Use IF Value = 0 THEN Value = - - - (No Else) . If you wan´t the Display blank you can use "Space" as shown Symbol. With three diggit type three Spaces (3 pushes on Spacebar) So the Diggits are Blank.

In youre case there is a little Problem..... The Decimal Point can´t switch off by a compare. So Youre Display show --,- If you realy NOT wan´t to see the DecimalPoint when Display shows --- then you need a second Config and 2 Preconditions. Just build a config without Decimal Point and let it only work when no DME is in range.

Good Luck
Good Luck !

Pizman82 thank you for your fast reply. I have been looking at the wrong offsets apparently (0C29 and 0C2E). I always check the offsets on the PM (Project Magenta website) as it is among the first websites that shows up on google when searching for fsuipc offsets, and apparently they don't have the 0300 and 0302 for DME, but only 0C29 and 0C2E. They are string values and that's why i couldn't get it to work. Thanks again my friend :thumbup:

Best regards

@ AlbEagle.
Do you Use Project Magenta ?? If NOT you should use the "real" offsetmapping from FSUIPC

With installed FSUIPC you find it in....... \fsx\modules\fsuipc documents\FSUIPC4 Offsets Status.pdf

Or you can download the UpToDate file on http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html

Good Luck !
Good Luck !
