Utility widgets

Widget Type Widget ARINC ID Supplement Usage
Connector A661_CONNECTOR 2 Reference a Layer in the definition of a parent Layer, to be able to include the connected Layer content in the context of the Layer which contains the Connector widget. See Connector

It allows to send data with "real−world" units but scale it to the dimensions or the widgets which must show them (such as for example a data which sets the position of a point on a graphical scale)
DataScalingULong A661_DATA_SCALING_ULONG 5 Allows to scale one ulong value sent by the UA before using it in another widget. It allows to send data with "real−world" units but scale it to the dimensions or the widgets which must show them (such as for example a data which sets the width or height of a rectangle)
DataScalingFR180 A661_DATA_SCALING_FR180 5 Allows to scale one fr(180) value sent by the UA before using it in another widget. It allows to send data with "real−world" units but scale it to the dimensions or the widgets which must show them (such as for example a data which changes angle of an ArcCircle)

AnimationOnParam A661_ANIMATION_ONPARAM 6 A widget which allows to perform an animation on any widget parameter (including parameters which are not modifiable at runtime by the UA). See Animation Widgets
AnimationGroup A661_ANIMATION_GROUP 6 An animation widget which allows to group together sequentially or in parallel several animations. See Animation Widgets

Remarks on specific widgets

Connector and DataConnector widgets

The A661_CONNECTOR and A661_DATA_CONNECTOR widgets allow to include a Layer content (the Connected Layer) in the context of another Layer. For example:

      <a661_df name="Default" library_version="0" supp_version="5">
         <model>
            <prop name="ApplicationId" value="1" />
         </model>
         <a661_layer name="master" >
            <model>
               <prop name="LayerId" value="1" />
               <prop name="ContextNumber" value="0" />
               <prop name="Height" value="10000" />
               <prop name="Width" value="10000" />
            </model>
            <a661_widget name="connector" type="A661_CONNECTOR">
               <model>
                  <prop name="WidgetIdent" value="1" />
                  <prop name="Visible" value="A661_TRUE" />
                  <prop name="Enable" value="A661_TRUE" />
                  <prop name="ConnectorReference" value="2" />
               </model>
            </a661_widget>
         </a661_layer>
      </a661_df>

The ConnectorReference specifies the reference to the Connected Layer. Note that the standard does not specify how the Server should resolve the Connected Layer with the reference (considering that a layer is specified by its Application ID and Layer ID, and the Connector Reference is only one ID. The way J661 will resolve the Connector Reference is the following:

BufferFormat widget

This widget allows to compress datas sent to several widgets. Rather than sending a SetParameters structure for each widget and for each widget Parameter Structure for each parameter, the BufferFormat specifies at design−time the list of widgets and parameter IDs which will be sent at runtime. For example:

      <a661_widget name="BufferFormat" type="A661_BUFFER_FORMAT">
         <model>
            <prop name="WidgetIdent" value="200" />
            <prop name="NumberOfFields" value="6" />
            <arrayprop name="BufferStructure">
               <structentry>
                  <field name="WidgetIdent" value="51" />
                  <field name="ParameterIdent" value="A661_VISIBLE" />
               </structentry>
               <structentry>
                  <field name="WidgetIdent" value="61" />
                  <field name="ParameterIdent" value="A661_RADIUS" />
               </structentry>
               <structentry>
                  <field name="WidgetIdent" value="51" />
                  <field name="ParameterIdent" value="A661_STRING" />
               </structentry>
               <structentry>
                  <field name="WidgetIdent" value="5" />
                  <field name="ParameterIdent" value="A661_POS_X" />
               </structentry>
               <structentry>
                  <field name="WidgetIdent" value="100" />
                  <field name="ParameterIdent" value="A661_FILL_INDEX" />
               </structentry>
               <structentry>
                  <field name="WidgetIdent" value="61" />
                  <field name="ParameterIdent" value="A661_END_ANGLE" />
               </structentry>
            </arrayprop>
         </model>

The datas will be sent in one block without having to specify the widgetID and the parameter ID for each parameter. However, this format does not allow to send arrays or more generally structured data.
