STRIG(n) - DualBrain/bsharp Wiki

To allow the use of a joystick by enabling or disabling the trapping of its buttons.

Syntax

STRIG(n) ON

STRIG(n) OFF

STRIG(n) STOP

Comments

n is 0, 2, 4, or 6, corresponding to the buttons on the joystick, where:

  • 0 is button A1
  • 2 is button B1
  • 4 is button A2
  • 6 is button B2

Example

STRIG(n) ON

Enables trapping of the joystick buttons. After this statement is executed, BASIC checks to see if this button has been pressed before executing following statements.

STRIG(n) OFF

Disables BASIC from checking the state of the button.

STRIG(n) STOP

Disables trapping of a given button through the ON STRIG(n) statement. But, any pressings are remembered so that trapping may take place once it is reenabled.
