No LVAR to show current flight director state

Recommended Posts



From what I can tell, there is no variable to show the current state of the flight director (on or off). Let me give an example:


If I am trying to access the NAV button for use with my hardware device, I can use the following commands:


LVAR:ASCRJ_FCP_NAV (toggles the NAV state)

LVAR:ASCRJ_FCP_NAV_LED (shows me the state on / off)


For the flight director, it has:


LVAR:ASCRJ_FCP_FD (toggles the FD state)


But it doesn't have anything to tell me what the flight director state is in the moment, and the SIMCONNECT var for flight director state is perpetually set to "on". While I understand that the CRJ does not have a FD led in the cockpit, many many external hardware products have a FD button with an indicator light and customers will expect that to light up when the FD is active. We are looking for something like this to be exposed: 


LVAR:ASCRJ_FCP_FD_STATE (shows me the state on / off of the flight director)


Thank you,
