Adding new status messages to mission planner


I’m trying to get the scaled pressure and a few other custom messages to display on the Mission Planner. I’m pretty sure I made the messages correctly on the APM folder; I followed the guide properly, and for step 5, I created a send_test_message method and updated the try_send_message method with the case for my message.

Now I’m trying to get my message to display on Mission Planner, which seems fairly confusing to me. I’ve connected the PixHawk to my laptop via USB and am looking at Mission Planner and seeing the same output. I’m not quite sure what I have to configure the status window to display the outputs of my new message.

I’m also looking into adding scaled_pressure on MP, so if anyone knows how to do that, I can follow those steps and backtrack the rest.
