      the x position of the HID
    • getX

      public abstract double getX​(GenericHID.Hand hand)
      Get the x position of HID.
      Parameters:
      hand - which hand, left or right
      Returns:
      the x position
    • getY

      public final double getY()
      Get the y position of the HID.
      Returns:
      the y position
    • getY

      public abstract double getY​(GenericHID.Hand hand)
      Get the y position of the HID.
      Parameters:
      hand - which hand, left or right
      Returns:
      the y position
    • getRawButton

      public boolean getRawButton​(int button)
      Get the button value (starting at button 1).

      The buttons are returned in a single 16 bit value with one bit representing the state of each button. The appropriate button is returned as a boolean value.

      This method returns true if the button is being held down at the time that this method is being called.

      Parameters:
      button - The button number to be read (starting at 1)
      Returns:
      The state of the button.
    • getRawButtonPressed

      public boolean getRawButtonPressed​(int button)
      Whether the button was pressed since the last check. Button indexes begin at 1.

      This method returns true if the button went from not pressed to held down since the last time this method was called. This is useful if you only want to call a function once when you press the button.

      Parameters:
      button - The button index, beginning at 1.
      Returns:
      Whether the button was pressed since the last check.
    • getRawButtonReleased

      public boolean getRawButtonReleased​(int button)
      Whether the button was released since the last check. Button indexes begin at 1.

      This method returns true if the button went from held down to not pressed since the last time this method was called. This is useful if you only want to call a function once when you release the button.

      Parameters:
      button - The button index, beginning at 1.
      Returns:
      Whether the button was released since the last check.
    • getRawAxis

      public double getRawAxis​(int axis)
      Get the value of the axis.
      Parameters:
      axis - The axis to read, starting at 0.
      Returns:
      The value of the axis.
    • getPOV

      public int getPOV​(int pov)
      Get the angle in degrees of a POV on the HID.

      The POV angles start at 0 in the up direction, and increase clockwise (eg right is 90, upper-left is 315).

      Parameters:
      pov - The index of the POV to read (starting at 0)
      Returns:
      the angle of the POV in degrees, or -1 if the POV is not pressed.
    • getPOV

      public int getPOV()
    • getAxisCount

      public int getAxisCount()
      Get the number of axes for the HID.
      Returns:
      the number of axis for the current HID
    • getPOVCount

      public int getPOVCount()
      For the current HID, return the number of POVs.
    • getButtonCount

      public int getButtonCount()
      For the current HID, return the number of buttons.
    • isConnected

      public boolean isConnected()
      Get if the HID is connected.
      Returns:
      true if the HID is connected
