Hi guys,

last days i am progressing with macros and lvars quite well to controll my A2A C172.
But some switches do not stay on permanently but just for a sencond as I press the button which I assigned in FSUIPC.
I have those issues with switching on Announciator Panel Test or Flood Lights on/off. I wrote lua scripts for both to test but in each case
the buttons work just for a second and then return to off position.

Here is my lua for the Flood Light 1 Switch. I see the floodlight in the panel shining for half a second once i press the button assigned.
But how can I let it remain in the on-position? I had the same issue with writing simple Macros (L:FloodLight1Sitch=SET) ... and setting Values via FSUIPC or Mobiflight, it does not stay in the on position permanently.

function Flood_1_On ()
ipc.writeLvar("L:FloodLight1Switch", 1)

function Flood_1_Off ()
ipc.writeLvar("L:FloodLight1Switch", 0)

function Flood_1_Toggle ()
Flood1 = ipc.readLvar("L:FloodLight1Switch")
if Flood1 == 0 then
Flood_1_On ()
Flood_1_Off ()

Flood_1_Toggle ()

Can anyone help me?
Best regards
