Programming Shooter C++

Iā€™m programming in c++ and i cant get the shooter to work. All i want it to do is when i press a button on the joystick, it runs the motor and if im not touching the button the motor doesnt run. How do i do this?:confused: :confused: :confused:

I have no idea what your setup is, but it would look something like this:


while (IsOperatorControl())
		{	           
			bool Button =joystick -> GetRawButton (3);
			if (Button)
			{
				Motor1->Set(1);
                        }
                        else if (!Button)
                        {
                               Motor1->Set(0);
                        }
                }

The button is 2, and the motor is Shooter. Im still having problems

Can you post your current code?

Without your current code its hard to tell what the issue is, but I would make sure that you have it in the constructor correctly. Iā€™m going guess that its a Jaguar, but it could easily be a Victor as well.

#include "WPILib.h"


class RobotDemo : public SimpleRobot
{
	
	Jaguar shooter; 

	Joystick driveStick; //it can be any name, not strictly driveStick :)

public:
	RobotDemo(void):
		
		//JAGUARS//
		shooter(1),	    //This is what port your shooter motor is in on the Sidecar
							
		//JOYSTICKS//	// These must be initialized in the same order
		driveStick(1)	// as they are declared above.
		
	{
		
		shooter.SetExpiration(0.1);  //for Driver Station
		
	}
	
	void Autonomous(void)
	{
			//where your autonomous would go
	}
	
	void OperatorControl(void)	//The Operator Control, what you're looking for!
	{
		while (IsOperatorControl())
		{
			
			if(driveStick.GetRawButton(2)) //This is a structure that says if 2 is pressed, shooter
			{							   //will be set to 100%
				shooter.Set(1.0);
			}
			else                           //anytime when it isn't pressed (else), the shooter will turn
			{							   // off
				shooter.Set(0.0);
			}
			
			Wait(0.005);  // wait for a motor update time
		}
	}
	
	void Test() 
	{
		//what runs during test mode
	}
};

START_ROBOT_CLASS(RobotDemo);
