Does anyone know what this points to? Not much info in the Learning Center Doc.

I understand the rest of the lines in the SimIG.view tag...but not what the OriginID represents or points to. (SimIG.View example below)



<SimIG.View>

<SlaveName>IGSlave0</SlaveName>

<ViewName>Slave0 Screen 0 Lower Left Corner</ViewName>

<ScreenAdapterNum>2</ScreenAdapterNum>

<ViewOriginID>1</ViewOriginID>

<SideAngles>-45,0,0,-45</SideAngles>

</SimIG.View>

The ViewOriginID allows you to setup different Master FOVs to be used when your Slaves are going to display Autogenerated Grids.



You might want to set up a 3x2 Grid showing a 120 Horozontal FOV and 45 Vertical View and so you could define this in your Master as ViewOriginID#1. In addition you may also require a different Grid with different FOVs and define this as ViewOriginID#2.



Your Master PC could then drive 2 sets of Slaves: some that reference ViewOriginID#1 and some that reference ViewOriginID#2



This way you can have a single SimIG.xml that covers a variety of scenarios. For example say you'd built a Re-configurable Simulator that replicated more than one aircraft type. In one aircraft type the FOVs were significantly different from your second aircraft. Each aircraft would have it's own ViewOriginID. When starting the Simulator for a particular aircraft the corresponding Slave.cfg files with the correct ViewOriginID# would be initiated and only the required outside views at the the required FOVs would show.



Hope this helps



Jim

Thanks Jim - That clears it up.
