The display window shows some sensor values in a large font. It is useful while dynoing to monitor the engine parameters.





Controls may be added to the window by right clicking on the window and selecting the control to add.  Control properties may be edited by double-clicking on the control or by right clicking on the control and selecting properties.  Controls may be re sized and moved by clicking and then dragging the control outline.


Sensor Selection

The sensor associated with a control may be selected by right clicking on the control and selecting the sensor.  Note that this will reset the display caption, value minimum/maximum to the sensor default.



Controls may be made transparent by settings the 'BackgroundTransparent' property to 'true', so that the background may be viewed or so that controls can be overlaid.


Display Order

If controls are overlaid then the draw order may be set by right clicking on the control and using the 'Send to Front' and 'Send to Back' commands.


Locking Controls

All controls can be locked
