Direct Input 8 Wrapper

Environment: VC6
Requires: DirectX 8 SDK

Use this class to setup and handle input from keyboard, mouse, and one joystick.

Instructions(DI only):

  • Derive a class from CDirectInput8
  • Override the input processing functions for each device used: HRESULT ProcessMouse(); HRESULT ProcessKB(); HRESULT ProcessJoy();(Don't forget to call base function at the beginning of each function.)
  • Call "InitDI(HWND hWnd, HINSTANCE hInstance, DWORD ToUse)"
  • The "ToUse" can take any combination of "USEMOUSE", "USEKEYBOARD", "USEJOYSTICK" flags depending on what devices you want to use

Instructions(Used in conjunction with D3D8 Framework):

  • Perform all steps above
  • Call "HRESULT InitDeviceObjects(LPDIRECT3DDEVICE8 pd3dDevice, TCHAR* pCursorFile = NULL/*Cursor image file*/)" in "InitDeviceObjects" of derived framework class
  • Call "HRESULT DrawMouse(LPDIRECT3DDEVICE8 pd3dDevice)" in "Render" of derived framework class
  • Call "HRESULT DeleteDeviceObjects() in "DeleteDeviceObjects" of derived framework class
  • Call "HRESULT InvalidateDeviceObjects() in "InvalidateDeviceObjects" of derived framework class
  • Call "HRESULT RestoreDeviceObjects(LPDIRECT3DDEVICE8 pd3dDevice) in "RestoreDeviceObjects" of derived framework class

Call ProcessMouse, ProcessKB. and/or ProcessJoy in each render loop to poll each device
Use m_js,  m_MouseState and buffer members to access joy, mouse, and keyboard data respectively
