joystick java program

We are a rookie team and are new to Java programming. Could anyone
tell us how to code, compile and run the program to make the
joystick functional?

Thanks a lot.

This line goes where you declare the variables for your class

Joystick joy1;

This line goes in your initialization method

joy1 = new Joystick(1); //where 1 is the USB port the joystick is plugged into

Then in teleop, you use methods from the JoystickClass to get data from the joysticks.


double axis1 = joy1.getRawAxis(1); // get the value from 1.0 to -1.0 off of axis 1;
leftMotor.set(axis1); //where leftMotor is some variable which talks to a motor controller
