Use AKAI MPK 261 to create patterns

I'm a newby to the world of music software and am trying to use my AKAI MPK 261 to create patterns/songs etc in FL Studio. I have the AKAI connected and can hear the notes played on the AKAI using various plugins and samples in Studio, but haven't been able to get any of the notes played on the keyboard into either the Channel Rack of Playlist. I am stumped on how to use the keyboard to create patterns in the Channel Rack in order to start putting a song together. My intent is to use the AKAI keyboard rather than the typing keyboard of mouse to create the patterns. In the Channel Rack if I start a new pattern, and insert selected instruments into channels, and click on a channel with the selected instrument and hit the AKAI keyboard I hear the right instrument playing the notes and see the light for the channel flashing as I hit notes, but nothing shows up to the right of the light where the pattern is supposed to show up. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks
JZN
