How To Add This Control To Your Project

Step #1) Load the most recent release of EZ-Builder
Step #2) Press the Project tab from the top menu bar of EZ-Builder
Step #3) Press Add Control from the button ribbon bar of EZ-Builder
Step #4) Choose the Miscellaneous category tab
Step #5) Press the Joystick icon to add the control to your project


One joystick can be connected and used with EZ-Builder to control movement, servo positions and assign scripts to buttons.

By default, the Analog/Digital joystick #1 is configured to control a Movement Panel. This can be changed by using the Config button and assigning servos to the joystick instead.

Each button can execute a script by either Press Down and Release Up.

If your joystick is connected after the project has been loaded, press the Refresh button to detect and load the joystick driver.

We recommend the Logitech F710 Wireless Joystick. If you use the F710 Logitech Wireless Driver, ensure the switch is selected to the D position and not X.

Different joysticks support a variety of drivers. The EZ-Builder software and EZ-SDK uses the DirectInput Native Windows Driver.
