Is it possible to have the squawk menu show when clicking the ASSR field in the fpl window? Currently it only allows to write a squawk manually.

 

For us this is problematic for vfr flights, we had to enable all aerodromes in the euroscope active airports list, but even so we have a lot of activity coming out of airfields without an icao code where they file zzzz as departure, and those will never show in the lists, so there is no way to tell topsky to assign a squawk for them

Type in the callsign, press .am and then the ASEL key? Then the old FP window comes up, and you can assign a squawk?

 

Is that what you are refering to?

Have you tried using EuroScope's Flight Plan list for that purpose? I would expect that to work reasonably well.

The problem with assigning an automatic code using the FPL window would be that the code assignment logic works on the flight plan currently active on the network, not on the temporary one that's being displayed in the window (they can be identical, but there's no guarantee of that). If you had done any changes to the data and then assigned an automatic code without first applying all the changes, it would still be assigned based on the old data. I wouldn't want that to happen, and putting checks in place to prevent it might be quite a lot of work.
