I have been browsing through my directX 7 SDK help files for hours now with no luck in a finding a single comprehensive list of all the keyboard key names along with the mouse and joystick button names. I know so far: Key--------DI name enter------DIK_ENTER home-------DIK_HOME F1---------DIK_F1 and the other basic keys but I dont know the number keypad names or the mouse button and joystick buttons names. Also, if you have a list of the normal windows names for them to, that would be great, like enter = VK_ENTER and home = VK_HOME Possibility

in one of the visual basic samples, it has a whole 256 sized array of keys and their names. It works like this

RETURNVALUE(DierctInput Key Name) = String Value of key name.

It should be very easy to read. Check all of the samples for that sub.

You can also just take a look at the DirectInput header (dinput.h) where the key codes are defined. All of the names are pretty self-explanatory, but there are some comments as well.
