Possible widget flicker (Read 812 times)

Maybe my aging eyes Smiley are going wonky, but I think I saw a couple/three widgets on the EMS page quickly disappear and reappear a few times on recent flights (with the newest software).  Can anyone confirm this on their system?

If I definitely see this behavior again, I'll grab a diagnostic file and send to Dynon, but was just curious if anyone else witnessed anything similar.

I have about 5 hours on the new release and have not seen this issue.

OK, my eyes are NOT getting old.  Today, during a 2-hour flight, I was looking directly at the EMS portion of the screen, at the fuel remaining widget, and it *definitely* disappeared and then reappeared a moment later.

I grabbed a diagnostic file and will upload it tomorrow.

Also, I noted that the EGT/CHT widget on a 30% window *does not fit* in the space...the left and right text ("EGT" "CHT" "*F") are cut off (extend past the window area).

You can hand code them to fit better. I squeezed the EGT/CHT widget to fit my pitch trim beside it. I also fattened up the bars.

...

I think the first params is the width of the bars and the second params is the space between. You can experiment to get better effects.

Code:
		EGT_CHT_WIDGET={
			type=WIDGET_EGT_CHT_VERT
			x_offset=-0.5
			y_offset=0.5
			width=39
			height=25
			params=6
			params=2
			params=0
			value_text=SMALL
			label_text=XSMALL
			}

Thanks, mmarien, works fine. You are the master of config files  Smiley

No response from Dynon after I uploaded the file...?

Steve,

I think, once you have sent something to support, it is best to contact them directly. Complaining here that they may or may not have gotten to your issue won't help.

Multiple cases of widget flicker experienced this weekend on a long x/c trip, newest software.  So many that I was able to get video to send to Dynon.  Hopefully they can sort this out with the next release.
