How to detect joystick buttons

Recommended Posts

I'm new to simconnect programming. I would like to press a joystick button and have my app detect that event so it can then act accordingly. How do I set up my code to detect when I've pressed one of my joystick buttons?

 

Thanks for any help...

Two ways (at least):

1) Use whatever programming language to monitor the joystick input, then generate whatever event you want with your app.

2) Map the joystick button to a Simconnect event, trap when that Simconnect event occurs, and use the event to trigger your app event. Ugly, but means you don't need to know about API's or whatever for direct joystick monitoring.
