Programming Logitech Dual Action

For the control of our tube manipulator this year it would really help if we could use the d-pad on the Logitech Dual Action controller. However, I haven’t yet found the VI in LabView to let us assign functions to the d-pad. I think it should be possible (why have this controller if we can’t use all of the buttons), but nothing seems to get the computer to recognize the d-pad. Help!

Thanks!

You’re using LabVIEW, right? Wire up a front-panel indicator to the axis and buttons outputs of a Joystick Get and see what responds when you play with the gamepad.

The D-pad is axis 1 and 2 when mode is on the controller I believe that it reports values of 0 90 180 and 270 depending on the angle
