swift pilot client text message handling (disable overlay messages)

Detached message window

You can detach the message window (like any other window)


Overlay messages

From the ATC and cockpit view you can use overlay text messages directly in the window



Private message buttons

You can use the private message buttons to send private messages to the closest ATC stations


Configure text messages

  • Defining which text messages are relayed to the simulator


  • Defining which text messages are shown as overlay in the client


  • Set focus as wanted

Disable overlay messages

Disable all checkboxes for overlay messages


Text message views

Normally you have text views for each radio channel and/or private text messages. The UNICOM and COM1/2 channels are permanent while the private channels can be closed.


That leads us to the role of the ALL view. This is a sortable table view (and no HTML text view as the other ones). It's role is different: It can help you to find a message again if you have already closed the private message tab or you do not know where it was.

If you do not know how to resize the columns we recommend the "UI tips and tricks" pctutorials{.interpreted-text role=“ref”}

Hint: You can use the tooltip to see longer messages .. image:: http://img.swift-project.org/longmessage.png
