Flight Instruments

Display measurements through standard cockpit instruments

To display flight status information for your application, such as altitude and heading, use the cockpit instrument functions and their properties. For example, you can use these functions and properties to replicate the look and feel of a standard cockpit. Create these standard cockpit instruments. Aerospace Toolbox creates the cockpit instruments as components. Use the associated properties to control the appearance and behavior of these cockpit instrument components.

These functions work only with figures created with the uifigure function. Apps created with GUIDE or the figure function do not support flight instrument components.
