JoyStick integration in QT
I'm undergraduate student. I'm working on a project. My project is about Game development using QT. But I found that this nice graphic library not have integration for Joystick.
My Question is that how I can use Joystick in QT base Programs? Is there any Class for Joystick? Can anyone send me example code implementation for joystick I QT?
Well there is no any class for this in Qt. You may have to use some thirdparty lib as I know "SDL":http://http://plib.sf.net is the one which has this support.
See if this "example":http://www.fredemmott.co.uk/blog/2009/07/23/Accessing joysticks with Qt helps you.
@ Mr.Irfan: Thanks for answer my question. I can not open the link which you have mention above. Can you write again the links for SDL and SDL Example.
Ah here it is again "SDL":http://plib.sf.net

@ Mr.Irfan:- Finaly I got it. I'll remain in you contact for future Joystick help. Thank for Great Help.
The one Other way could think of writing own class which interacts with joystick using joystick driver and QIoDevice, how is joy stick connected with your machine? is that using RS232? then you can get input on IODevice?
@ Mr. Immii :- I think this idea is also good. Can you guide me further on this method? Can anyone give me more details on above topic? I mean tools or examples or other resources which can help to understand QioDevice and Joystick DRIVER? I'll try both of these methods to use joystick in QT and check which method is best for me.
another option--a little lame, but it works.
python has a games module. Use python to access your joystick, and another communication method (I used a UDP socket) to send joy data to your application
Another option that you might want to consider is using SFML.
SFML is a free multimedia C++ API that provides you low and high level access to graphics, input, audio, etc.
Here is a tutorial on how to integrate it into Qt.
And here is the input class.
