Monday, March 22, 2010 8:25 PMDo we have the ability to control things (icons or whatever) with an xbox contoller in SB yet? Nothing pops up when I search with "xbox".

Small Basic has Mouse functions built in. Perhaps a starting point would be to see if SB will see the Xbox controller as a mouse. A long shoot but worth a try.
The next thing to lookup is there a DLL available that will talk to the controller, then is it SB compatiable. Fremy developed an extension or DLL which added a lot of functionality to SB. I could see a similar thing happening with the controller you are trying to access.
If all this fails I think it would be a really good idea for the Wish List!

personally i bought a xbox type pad controller for my laptop, its USB style and is basically seen as a joystick type of device..
I think thats a better way to go IMHO
PS When or will we see a 3rd mouse button & scroll wheel functions at some point ?
Maybe those and USB joystick/pad support together ..

Oskariok's Data Extension can drive XBOX controllers and my Joysticks / Game Controllers Extension can drive any game controller out there. However, for XBOX, you may prefer Oskariok's since it has XBOX-specific controller things like Battery Level.
Both are available here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/smallbasic/thread/2a510e0f-e5e1-4f90-aa84-0ed484bbd64f
