FSUIPC C++ Access to Buttons

Recommended Posts

I've looked at the Lua examples and I can build and run the C++ example in Visual Studio.  So I know how to read/write the offsets.  In Lua, there are events that can be used to read input from joystick buttons.  What's the equivalent in C++?

I've searched and really can't find anything.

Thanks.

I guess I should add I'm using FSX with a registered version of FSUIPC 4.973.  I just want my C++ program to know when a joystick button is presses.

Then you didn't find offset 03C0!

Note that, as it says, you need to actually have the relevant joysticks actually scanned by FSUIPC, which means at least something assigned. But then the same applies in the Lua library facilities.

BTW the FSUIPC you are using is out of date. You should update.

OK, with 60 pages of numbers, I did miss that one.  Thanks.

Part of my question was also that Lua seems to have a library call that allows attaching a callback function to provide notification if a button changes. (I think)  For C/C++, with just access to an offset, it must be polled to detect when a button changes.  True?

Also, I just downloaded & registered FSUIPC in the last week or so.  I misspoke I actually have 4.974.  Is that the latest? 

Awesome program, by the way!

Yes! You could, of course, write a wrapper around the provided functions to implement a callback mechanism if required...

4.974 is the latest supported version, however there is a version 4.974b which contains an improved Lua ext library (see the 'Updated Modules' support page:

).

Cheers,

Maybe you should take a look at Paul Henty's client dll for .net - I haven't checked myself but I think thats more OO and may have callback facilities....of course, c# not c++.

Cheers,

John
