Hi there!

I'm quite new to SimVim so I'm still figuring things out. I've successfully used buttons, switches, encoders and 7-segment displays.

But in the configurator, I always leave these options with their default values :

What are these options used for and how can I use them?

Thanks again for your amazing work guys!

These fields are optional, and are used to link the display's brightness to a particular X-Plane brightness area, or to turn it off when the voltage on a particular bus is below a given value.

The brightness areas and voltage buses are handled by X-Plane itself, and different aircraft models may utilize them differently - so, these are options only for those who already know what they are doing. You need to know how brightness areas and voltage buses are defined in your particular aircraft model.

We eventually plan to get rid of these options in the configurator, and only leave them as advanced settings in a plugin menu.
