(Using C++) Values for different buttons on a gamepad:
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_DPAD_UP          0x0001
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_DPAD_DOWN        0x0002
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_DPAD_LEFT        0x0004
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_DPAD_RIGHT       0x0008
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_START            0x0010
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_BACK             0x0020
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_LEFT_THUMB       0x0040
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_RIGHT_THUMB      0x0080
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_A                0x1000
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_B                0x2000
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_X                0x4000
#define XINPUT_GAMEPAD_Y                0x8000
The gamepad will send this data in a single WORD. (I.E. 0x1111 would be DPAD_UP and START and LEFT_SHOULDER and A being pressed at the same time) How can I figure out the certain buttons that are being pressed? for example, to check to see if the A button is being pressed:
if(buttonstate[A_BUTTON])//Something similar to 0 or 1 as its possible states
