I'm working on an FCU panel for my Aerosoft A320 and have finally managed to have my 7 segment display to show the selected altitude and my rotary encoder to change it. Now I'm moving on with the rest of the displays but I'm afraid I've ran into a problem I can't seem to solve on my own.

Is it possible to display string values on the display? In the A320, pushing the HDG know will set the auto pilot in heading managed mode and the hdg display shows "---*". I'm trying to figure out how to get that to show on my panel (---.). Any idea?

And while I'm at it, are there any plans on adding the 1602, 16x2 LCD display to the list of supported hardware?

You can use strings in the Comparison Tab where you say for example

iconCode:
if value > 0 
then "std" 
else "---"


Does this make sense?
Have a great day!
