  • Question

  • Hello Everybody.
    I'm writing UWP c++ app where i have to use a joystick.
    I have a big problem because i can't find any api, solution or sample that would work on PC.
    I would be grateful if someone give me a few instructions to do.
    Thanks in advance.

  • UWP does not support the DirectInput API. It only supports Windows.Gaming.Input and an XINPUT API wrapper for Windows.Gaming.Input.

    As of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (14393), Windows 10 supports all Xbox One certified and Xbox 360 compatible controller devices, but not legacy HID joysticks.

  • Hi Andrej1121,

    thanks for posting here.

    This forum is about c++ development. For your case which is more related to UWP, I will move it to UWP forum for better help.

    Your understanding and cooperation will be grateful.

    Best Regards,

    Sera Yu

  • Can anyone find a list for Xbox One Certified Joysticks? I tried the Logitexh Extreme 3D Pro and it never gets detected by the Windows.Gaming.Input.FlightStick APIs.
