Hi all,
I set 12 physical buttons to activate the G1000 PFD "softkeys" and all works perfectly.
I was wondering how to use the same buttons to activate the G1000 MFD softkeys too.
I tried inserting a precondition in every input associated to my buttons.
For testing I inserted a precondition from FSUIPC preset (I used Cockpit - navlights).
If navlights are on, the buttons work for G1000 PFD, if condition is false, they work for G1000 MFD.
This test worked great!
There is a problem : to use two button sets I have to switch lights on and off.
Is possible to insert a condition that doesn't affect aircraft behaviour?
A sort of "ghost" condition?
I hope my explanation was clear enough
Thank you for your suggestions

Here we work with a simple CUSTOM OFFSET System.

We use a "free" Offset like 66C0 like a "memory" .

Your Switch for example write this "Custom Offset" to a value.... For example a latching switch use Press "1" and Release "0" .
Then we READ this Offset with a Output Config ( No device needed here..... This is just for preconditions) .....
Call it e.g. "Selector Info"

Finaly all your Buttons use this Config as Precondition....
Each Button got here 2 Configs ( One for the Controll of e.g. PFD.... another for ND )
The PFD Configs say precondition " Only work if Config "Selector Info" = 0" .... The ND Configs say "Only work if Config "Selector Info" =1"

Finaly we got a lot of possible ways now.... We can also use a momentary button for selecting. Use a Input formula like : if(1,0,1) to toggle 0,1,0,1,0,1,
Or use something like if($=3,0,$+1) ..... This occure in swapping 0,1,2,3,0,1,2,3,
Good Luck !
