GetAnalogControlState

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki

This retrieves the analog control state of a control. This is useful for detecting sensitive controls, such as those used on a joypad.

To get the analog control state for a ped, please use getPedAnalogControlState.

Syntax

float getAnalogControlState ( string control [, bool rawValue ] )

Required Arguments

  • control: The control that you want to get the state of. See control names for a list of possible controls.

Optional Arguments

FROM VERSION 1.5.7 r20383 ONWARDS
  • rawValue: A bool indicating whether to poll for raw controller state, which ignores keyboard input and any overrides from setAnalogControlState and others. When set to true, and a controller is not used, the function will always return 0.

Returns

Returns a float between 0 and 1 indicating the amount the control is pressed.

Example

This creates an /forwards command, which toggles your forwards control state between 0 and 1.

addCommandHandler( "forwards",
    function( )
        if ( getAnalogControlState( "forwards" ) == 0 ) then
            setAnalogControlState( "forwards", 1 )
        else
            setAnalogControlState( "forwards", 0 )
        end
    end
)
