Does anyone have an example of creating a simple HID based input device for a computer? I have no clue the steps required to interface with Windows on a, I guess, driver level through the USB... or if this is possible at all.
What I'm aiming for is if someone has done this before (I'm sure someone somewhere has), but a writeup of how to make an input device similar to only the buttons on a Joystick. You know like when you get a joystick, it'll have about 10 buttons on them, and when you interface with the computer using DirectInput you simply call them Button0, Button1, etcetera. That's what I want to do... be able to use a basic board with about 10 push button switches that I can press and react to them on the computer.
Thanks for any pointers or tips in advance.
