I am trying to get keygrabber to recognise a usb joystick, which I am making.  I can't get keygrabber to recognise the HID device.  Windows shows this device under game controllers.  If I use the Joystick plug in The joystick works ok, but I need to configure the other features of the joystick ie analog feed & spindle override, Mpg moverments etc.  Has anyone got any clues of what I can do next???

This threard may help. If not we will try and get you sorted either way. As Brian said, it might be best to use the plugin.


;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Thanks guys for the replys.
I have SOME of it sorted.  I only really know a little VB so the thought of getting involved in a plug-in is a little worrying (I am but a humble machinist).
I have been playing around with the macropump, and I have a lot of the functions working.  I have up to six channels of 10bit analog working, at the moment this is only doing x & y jogging, feedrate override, spindle override, and rapid override - I have one channel up my sleave (mmmm, now what can I use that for). I have 32 buttons working, but am having trouble with 2 mpg inputs and duplex toggle switch inputs, but this is more of a API problem I think.  I am using the winmm.dll and I think it is having trouble with more than 32 buttons - can anyone shed some light on this?????
What I am having trouble with is push buttons for jogging the axis.  I am calling an OEMButton 311 (for z axis), but I need to have a button up event to stop the jogging when my shaking finger leaves the button.  Can anyone shed light on this???

Art mentioned that there was the VB Source code somewhere for the keygrabber utility.  Does anyone know where this is.  I found on the Yahoo list c++ code for keygrabber, I think in is Borland C++ but I'm not sure.
