Virtual Window in FI?

Postby dyarza » Fri Feb 10, 2017 8:22 pm

Sorry if this has been covered, I am not finding much related to it.

Is there a way to open a window in Fly Inside to another application? On another forum, we've had lots of` discussion about wanting to use Foreflight on our iPads to train IFR. Once in the Oculus, we can't see the iPad to brief plates, etc. but if there was a way to bring in an application like AirServer in a window, it would be like having the iPad in the cockpit.

Any way to do this?

Good question. I think this has been brought up before. If there is a way with you program to have it as a virtual window running the program then yes. Bit I'm not too sure. I'll ask the devs for you ;)

Yes, Airserver will run Foreflight in a window, so if I can get that into the cockpit view somehow... that would really be the complete IFR training package there.

Cheers,

So I've lookid into Virtual Windows and it does exactly this, however, my AirServer window does not show up in the list of possible windows to bring in.

Anybody bringing AirServer in as a Virtual Window with success?

Thanks.

sometimes the window is in the list but you don't see it because its title is missing, try to click in the empty space of the windows list, if window title is blank that will select a small rectangle.
