Hello
I have some virtual buttons that increment or decrement a variable when pressed once. If I hold down the button, I would like to continue changing the variables value
and sync the screen to reflect this. For some reason this doesn't appear to work correctly.

My website for testing is here

to get a better idea of what I'm trying to do.

Thanks yoda333

integer GetButtonState( index )

1 is returned if down 0 otherwise

and your code only needs one sync preferable just before the loop command
using sync that much will kill any frame rate

try something like the following


also
Quote: "elseif isn't always the solution"

elseif is great if you have a new condition to check true
but for your example there is no point as its better to use
when there is multiple conditions and multiple states



an example of when case cant be used and elseif is the better choice


GOODLUCK with your project

Thanks fubrpk

GetVirtualButtonState(1) = 1 does the trick.



Cheers
