If some indicator does not have any interaction with the mouse (not even a tooltip), its argument number may not appear in any Lua file at all.

If that is the case with this indicator, post a screenshot where the offending indicator is pointed out.

I have found an efficient way to find argument numbers with the ED Model Viewer a while ago. I could then make a video tutorial about that method using this indicator as an example.

That sounds good Ian. This one seems solved going by the documentation.

Flight Manual:
Quote:
ПОЖАР РЕДУК. АИ-9 (ROTOR TRANSMISSION FIRE АI-9) lamp indicates about a fire in the units of the main rotor transmission, the fuel consumed tank and the АИ-9В (AI-9V) engine
So I think "LMP_REDUC_AI9_FIRE" is the correct one. Isn't reduction = transmission? And with the APU being AI-9V.

But Ian if you can look at Witchcraft at some point I'd be a happy puppy.

I remembered this post. Now we have a new problem. The AJS37's FR22 radio dials are default_axis => define_potentiometer and I can't get the frequencies by reading their values.
So can the method you mentioned be used here to read the frequency set? I am posting a screenshot of the indicator.

Loaded the cockpit, can't figure out how to zoom in that particular part of the cockpit, nor did I find anything useful from the connectors.
Ian?

OK, I selected "Cockpit View" and managed to get all controls in view.
That gauge is PNT_171 (left side) and PNT_173 (right side), don't know whether this helps at all. And I am suspecting it just shows those values when hoovering over the gauge because the mouse is too close to the dials.
Those are the
Code:
elements["PNT_171"] = default_axis(_("Radio Manual Frequency Setting Knob Inner Left"),devices.FR22,3003,171, 0, 1,false,true)
elements["PNT_173"] = default_axis(_("Radio Manual Frequency Setting Knob Inner Right"),devices.FR22,3005,173, 0, 1,false,true)
So doesn't this gauge have any values by it's own?
