    Thanks again guys. I want to display an analog input in a window. Probably a voltage divider using a VDO sending unit for oil press, oil temp, water temp, and later fuel pressure, etc. What software does PNG in layers?

    I use Photoshop and Macromedia Fireworks(gone). Look at Photoshop Elements.

    I created a display of the engine data that I would like to see in Autocad and saved it as a PNG file. I opened up the configuration and pulled this display into the graphic window. By changing the size of the display image in another software I was able to get the display to fill up the window. What happens next? I need to configure the analog ports, build the logic for temp convertions, create "lables" but in what order? I tried ninja kitty but it just defaults to another image. I can change the image but all of the port and data windows are the same. We need a software manual. Can all of the operations be done with a virtual brain option? I tried clicking the debug button and got some blocks to check but I do not know when this is to be done. Hardware is ez the software always seems to be the issue. Thanks for any help.

    Well for every analogue input that you are reading, you will need to have a corresponding Brain Instance, and Analogue Input Instance. Then you can feed that through a Logic Block to convert it into temperature into a variable using the set option. Now that variable contains the temperature equivalent reading of the analogue input's voltage. So you can use that variable to make a text label, or to make a rotating image, or a multiimage, or whatever else you would like.

    The wizard is just to setup all the brains and ports. You can use that if you want, but you will find yourself having to change more than it is worth for this application.

    And I am writing a software manual. Most of what you are asking is not in there yet though. Here is what I have so far so you know I am not just b.s.-ing : http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/T...ual%20b004.pdf

    Toaster,

    Thanks for the link to the manual. It will be a great tool when it is complete. I was wondering about a general order that one could follow so that the files are there when you need them. Keep up the good work.
