How to use a ps3 controller with labview

Hello, I am trying to implement a ps3 controller in labview but am having trouble. I was wondering if anyone knew how to do this or had any ideas for me. Thanks for the help

Hi Keaton
I'm not too sure how the inputs of the controllers work on a lower level, but Sixaxis offers a driver to integrate the ps3 controller onto a pc. It is available at this website: 
This may be an easier starting point that having to go from scratch. You can look into using the call library functions in labview and access some of the functions that may be available in that driver. This seems like a better choice then pulling out wires and using a daq device to read value since you wont actually have to take apart the controller. That being said, for support on that driver, you might have more luck on the sixaxis forums here:
Hope this helps

  • UIX/JSP - How to use the UIX Controller with UIX/JSP

    After reading the UIX Developers Guide I am under the impression that I could use the UIX Controller with UIX/JSP pages. Is this correct and are there any available examples?
    Bill G...

    It's correct, but I'm afraid we don't have much (read as "any")
    documentation on how to do that - besides reading through the
    gobs of Javadoc and guessing how to put it together.
    Half of the problem is solved by registering JspPageDescriptions
    on a PageBroker (e.g., UIXPageBroker) to tell the UIX Controller
    to use a JSP to render a particular page, instead of a UIX XML
    The other half is getting the JSP to send requests back to
    the UIX Controller. Depending on how you've chosen to name
    your pages, create either a DefaultPageEncoder or ExtensionPageEncoder
    inside your JSP, and use that to create destination URLs.

  • "How to use an Appplicom card with Labview and a Seimens PLC"

    Hi, I am using an applicom card type PCI1500-PFB to communicate with a Seimens S7-300 CPU315-2DP plc. I am using this simply to display in a labview front panel the outputs of the plc and may in the future use switches on the front panel to control the inputs of the plc. How do I do the communication? I have setup the applicam card and have comms with the plc I think. I am trying to use data socket to communicate to the plc via the applicom card. Any suggestions?

    There�s a fair bit of documentation on NI�s site regarding the Applicom card.
    The following doc does a pretty good job summarizing Applicom's PCCONF and PCINIT, and the use of ReadWait and WriteWait to ensure you�ve got communication with the between the PLC and the Applicom card:
    Since it doesn�t sound like you�re using the LV DSC module, you can stop reading once it gets into connecting to Lookout Objects.
    Once you�re sure you�ve got comm, you can do some quick tests in LabVIEW using front panel datasocket connections as shown on page 11-12 of the following:
    From there, it all depends on
    the complexity of your system. If simple, you could just stay with front panel connections, or you could move to programming with the Datasocket Read and Write functions.
    ... and if you get to the point that Datasocket is too slow and cumbersome, you might want to look at the LV DSC module:

  • How to use a GPIB card's LabView drivers to communicate with the card?

    I have an axiomtek AX4810P PCI-GPIB card and i have aquired LabView drivers from the manufacturer.
    This has put VI's for the GPIB functions on the 'user palette' but i can't work out how to use them to communicate with the card. can anyone help? please.

    Thank you for contacting National Instruments.
    Unfortunately, since you are not using a National Instruments GPIB card, I do not have access to the drivers that were provided to you by your card's manufacturer. I would suggest contacting Axiomtek directly to obtain support using their drivers.
    However, I did write a small VI that demonstrates how to use similar National Instruments drivers with a National Instruments GPIB card. Keep in mind, this example VI is not intended to work with your particular card. The drivers you obtained from Axiomtek may have similar functions, however, and you can use my VI as a guide. My VI allows you to send a command to an instrument at address 2 on the GPIB card.
    Hope this helps!

    How to program a midi foot controller on Mainstage? Does anyone knows how to program the foot controller with exclusive solo channel in order not to dance "tip tap" while from clean guitar I go to crunch or solo? How to do this programming on Mainstage?
    I basically managed to learn how to invert parameters which allows me to be as default in the clean guitar channel and if I switch the first button on the midi foot controller I switch to crunch, but at this point I tryied so hard to programm the second and third button to switch, only through a button in one step, to a third channel for distorsion or a 4th channel for solo guitar but I couldn't figured out how this work can be done!
    I would appreciate if anyone could help or share this experience with others who are experiencing the same problem.

    I cannot seem to get mainstage to recognize my FCB either. I am using IFCB. Anyone figure this out?

  • How to use Two main windows with in a page in script ?

    Hi any body explain me...
    How to use Two main windows with in a page in script ?
    with  header data in one main window,
    & Item data in other main window.

    u need to go for <b>SPLITTING THE MAIN WINDOW</b> !!!
    Main windows in page windows allow you to format text in multiple columns. Define an area in the page window, in which to position the main windows.
    Here is the procedure !!
    -->Create a page window and assign it to a page.
    Choose <b>Edit --> Main windows</b>.
    A dialog box appears.
    -->Enter values in the fields <b>Area width</b> and A<b>rea height</b> in accordance with the input guidelines for main windows.
    -->Enter values in the fields <b>Spacing</b> and Number in the <b>Horizontal group</b> if you want to use multiple columns. You can ignore the fields in the Vertical group.
    Determine how many columns and line areas are required for label printing. Then enter the corresponding values in the fields in the <b>Horizontal and Vertical groups</b>.
    -->The value in the field Left margin varies from main window to main window if multiple columns are used. The following applies:
    Left margin of current column + Window width + Horizontal spacing = Left margin of next column</b>
    In label printing, the field Upper margin also varies from main window to main window:
      Upper margin of current main window +  Window height + Vertical spacing = Upper margin of next main window</b>
    -->Enter a value in the field Start position.
    This is a counter. Enter a starting value which is equal to or greater than 1.
    -->The main windows are added to the list.
    -->Save your form.

  • How to use JavaMail 1.4 with Oracle Application Server 10g (

    Hi all,
    I'd like to know if it's possible and how to use JavaMail 1.4 with Oracle Application Server 10g (, Windows version.
    With the following code, I can see that the mail.jar used by the server is the one included in the jdk installation :
    // I'm testing InternetAddress.class because I want to use commons-email-1.2.jar that requires mail.jar 1.4 (or higher) and activation.jar 1.1 (or higher)
    // and I know that inside the commons-email-1.2.jar file, I need to call the InternetAddress.validate() method that throws a java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress.validate()V if it is used with mail.jar 1.2.
    Class cls = javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress.class; pDomain = cls.getProtectionDomain(); cSource = pDomain.getCodeSource(); location = cSource.getLocation();
    This code returns : file:/C:/oracle/app/jdk/jre/lib/ext/mail.jar and this mail.jar file has an implementation version number: 1.2
    - I've tried to include my own mail.jar (1.4.2) and activation.jar (1.1.1) files in the war file that I deploy, but it doesn't work (the server still uses the same mail.jar 1.2)
    - I've tried to put the mail.jar (1.4.2) and activation.jar (1.1.1) files in the applib directory of my OC4J instance, but it doesn't work (the server still uses the same mail.jar 1.2)
    - I know that a patch exists : I've read the following document: How to Make Libraries such as mail.jar and activation.jar Swappable ? [ID 552432.1]
    This article talks about the Patch 6514136, but this patch only applies to : Oracle Containers for J2EE - Version:
    Can you please help me ?
    Thanks in advance for your answers,

    I strongly suggest to upgrade to AS 10.1.3 to get this.
    Think of future support of AS 9.0.4. You will get not critical patch updates anymore.

  • How To Use Your Own Router with Out Loosing Verizon's FIOS Services

    How to use your own router with Verizon’s FIOS Service
    First, you need a basic understanding of how FIOS works but unfortunately there are two types of FIOS systems out there. All of the systems utilize a fiber optic cable to bring TV, phone and internet to your location over one optic cable. In addition these systems provide interactivity including widgets, remote DVR, movies on demand and so forth via an IP (Internet Protocol) signal.  Your STB (Set Tip Box) requires both a video and IP signal. The IP signal is necessary for all of the aforementioned interactivity.  The fiber cable terminates at the Optical Network Terminal or ONT for short.  The ONT converts the optics into a digital signal that can be utilized by ones equipment.  From the ONT your video, phone and internet are provided to the location.  This is where things can differ as the internet signal can be provided via a coaxial (MoCA or Multimedia over Coax Alliance) or RJ45 Cat5 (Ethernet) cable.  It is important to identify and understand the differences of these two setups.  In my case I have my internet entering via Ethernet cable, which in my humble opinion makes things a heck of a lot easier.
    How does one tell the difference? In most cases it’s rather simple; just look at the Verizon’s router WAN (Wide Area Network) Port.  Does it have a RJ45 (Ethernet) or Coax (TV cable Cord) going to it? If the router’s WAN port doesn’t have a coaxial connector then one will need to convert the MoCA signal into a usable Ethernet signal that routers understand. The easiest way is to use Verizon’s router as a bridge. In this method the Verizon’s router simply converts the signal and passes it along to your own router. The challenge is to try to maintain the interactivity that FIOS TV provides. Because of this one needs to supply the IP routed signal back to the FIOS router.  There are multiple methods for doing this and I would recommend investigates which one make the most sense.   
    In my particular case the IP signal was provided by Ethernet.  Again there are various ways of installing one’s own router. The hardest is to utilize Verizon’s router as a bridge.  This setup requires configuring Verizon’s router as a bridge and also creating a VLAN (Virtual Local Area Networks). In addition one needs to set up their own router so it will work with the various routing tables and networks. For me this is too complex for the average person and it can be difficult to trouble shoot if something goes wrong. Please consider that Verizon will not support utilizing third party routers.   
    The easier method is to request an Ethernet signal (if you don’t already have one) from their ONT.  I would highly recommend getting your hands on a NIM or Network Interface Module. This device is used to convert Ethernet to Coaxial so it can be fed back to your STBs.  These can be purchased online and Verizon technicians can be a valuable resource with these sorts of acquisition.  At the very least they can point you to the right direction.  Once you have a NIM the rest is rather simple.
    Log into the current Verizon Router.
    Located the router’s MAC address and copy it down.
    Go to the port forwarding section and copy down the Applied Rules. 
    Network Computer/Device:
    Application & Ports Forward:  Application UDP Any -> 6347  
    Note: There may be up to three entries for each one of your Set Top Boxes.
    Look at your current device list, typically found on the home screen. Copy down your STB MAC and IP address.
    Connection Type: Ethernet
    * IP Address:
    IP Address Allocation: DHCP
    *MAC Address:                07:73:fFe:ad:8b:3f
    * Things you will need to write down
    Go to the network section and look for the main Ethernet connection.  Select this and then select more setting, typically found at the bottom. Release the current lease.
    Remove the Verizon router
    Install your router
    Connect the NIM by plugging in an Ethernet from one of the routers LAN (Local Area Network) ports to your NIM. Then connect the coax cable, the same cable that was used by Verizon router.
    Set you DHCP routing IP pool to accommodate Verizon’s STB IP’s  (note their IP’s start at
    Go to DHCP section and reserve the STB IP’s by inserting the IP’s and MAC addresses. This shall ensure that nothing else utilizes the same IPs as the STBs thereby preventing IP address conflict.  
    Add the port forwards from Step 5 above.
    Clone Verizon’s Mac Address utilizing the info from step 2
    Finish setting up the router in typical fashion.
    Unplug and re-plugin your STB’s and test functionality.  It’s best to try using a widget or Movie on demand function.
    Note: if the new router can net get an internet signal contact Verizon’s support and have them release the IP and reset the ONT.  
    EVERYTHING should be working at this point.

     3 Go to the port forwarding section and copy down the Applied Rules. 
    Network Computer/Device:
    Application & Ports Forward:  Application UDP Any -> 6347  
    Note: There may be up to three entries for each one of your Set Top Boxes.G
    Your display obviously is not like mine as mine does not dosplay the port associated with the ip address
    whatever, the STB's start at and icement by 1 for each
    the port addr's will be 63145 alo incrementing by 1
    there is 1 entry for each in my pf list
    however each ip addr also has a port entry starting at 35000 also incrementing by 1 for each ip addr
    For some unknow reason these are duplicated e.g I appear to have 11 entries exaactly the same for each stb and as the fios services rules have no action switc there is nowhere to delete the extraneous garbage.
    Why do you clone the mac addr??

  • How can I record a video with LAbview?

    I have a question: How can I record a video with labview?
    I have a camera (AXIS 221) connected via rj45 on PC. I see the video of the camera in a browser.
    And I would to acquire the video in labview.
    Could someone help me?

    Unfortunately I haven't any experience with this camera. Iguess, you should install API, then crete new VI, place ActiveX container (palette Container->ActiveX) on the Front Panel, then right mouse click, then choose Insert ActiveX object..., then found you camera object and select it and press OK. Then you probably can see image from the on the front panel. Also probably you will be able to get image data in array (how easy is it - depends from the camera API).
    If you able to see image from camera in the Internet Explorer, then another method - you can put Microsoft Web Browser as ActiveX object, then you should also see the image. Disadvantage of this method - you will be not able to get image data.

  • How to Use JavaScript in Controller Class...

    Hi All,
    Can any one tell me how to use JavaScript in Controller Class.
    Requirement is:
    I have
    Radio Group(RG1),
    Two Radio Buttons(RB1,RB2),
    Two messageTextInput(MTI1,MTI2),
    if i click RB1 i should Prompt to the end user to "Enter value for MTI1" or
    If i click RB2 i should prompt "Enter value for MTI2" while submitting page.
    Please let me know the steps to use JavaScript and the above client validation...

    Using javascript is against the standard. I can tell you a workaround instead of you setting the javascript, check if that would be acceptable.
    You can use PPR and set the required property on the messageTextInput on clicking of the radio button. By doing this you will let UIX generate the javascript for you to handle the client side validation. But the validation will happen only on click of the submit button. The visual indicator is good enough to tell that the value has to be entered to the item.
