Hello, I am programming a flight simulator application with Direct Input, but I want to get the position of the throttle lever just after the simulation start. I have been using direct input, and implementing almost the same routine shown at the example at the Direct X SDK. However, in this sample, you start getting the information of the position of the Axes, JUST AFTER YOU DO SOMETHING WITH THE JOYSTICK (for instance, pressing a button). Is there any way I can get the information about the throttle lever just after my application has started, withoout having to press any button before ?
