cross bar vs V bar


does anybody know if it is possible to change the flight director information from V bar to cross bar and viceversa via efis, fms, or other means?
it is related to md80 instrumentation.

Don't know MD80 but other aircraft I've worked on this has been a "pin program" option - you have to change wiring to select what to draw on the EFIS.

You'll need to check that its' legal for you to do such a change too,
as the V-Bars vs Cross-Pointers might well be written into your
country/regulatory authority AFM supplement for the aeroplane.
