On a IFR flight in IMC conditions, I am using the flight management computer until I get radar vectors for the ILS final approach. I can set up the right display for the approach the nav. radios and receive localizer readings but no glideslope readings. So I am unable to follow the correct glide path to the runway.

Do I have the incorrect switch settings? If so, what should they be? Or if the United 747-400 does not come with a ILS glideslope, how do I set one up. Thank you

The glideslope is indicated in the default 747 with a small purple diamond shape in the EFIS. You can click on the yoke to make it disappear so that's it's easier to see the panel. I have highlighted the g/s indicator in an orange box in the attached pic.

Thank you,

The glideslope indicator was there all the time, it turns out that it was just hard to see on my computer monitor unless I zoom in on the display. It is hard for me to see when looking out the window for the runway and watching the EFIS together.

You were a great help and thank for taking time out to answer my question.     I'm loving x- plane
