Class: GamepadPlugin

Phaser.Input.Gamepad. GamepadPlugin

The Gamepad Plugin is an input plugin that belongs to the Scene-owned Input system.

Its role is to listen for native DOM Gamepad Events and then process them.

You do not need to create this class directly, the Input system will create an instance of it automatically.

You can access it from within a Scene using this.input.gamepad.

To listen for a gamepad being connected:

this.input.gamepad.once('connected', function (pad) {
    //   'pad' is a reference to the gamepad that was just connected
});

Note that the browser may require you to press a button on a gamepad before it will allow you to access it, this is for security reasons. However, it may also trust the page already, in which case you won't get the 'connected' event and instead should check GamepadPlugin.total to see if it thinks there are any gamepads already connected.

Once you have received the connected event, or polled the gamepads and found them enabled, you can access them via the built-in properties GamepadPlugin.pad1 to pad4, for up to 4 game pads. With a reference to the gamepads you can poll its buttons and axis sticks. See the properties and methods available on the Gamepad class for more details.
