When I plug in the USB joystick, I'll have to go to the control panel and select game controllers. I click on the properties and a pop-up is displayed. On the top left hand corner of it, there's this small square 'picture' with a plus sign at the middle indicating the joysticks' movement. As I moved up, the sign moves up as well and as I move down it does too. It depicts the movements of the joystick in use.

I was wondering how to code the exact same thing as I'm planning to place the square thingy in a 'question' image which will change after every submitted answer of the image using the joystick.

If anyone could help, please?

Usually the joystick manufacturer will provide you with some API that will interact with the joystick driver to capture the joystick movements.

Hope this helps
