I want to use an Arduino Dual-As Xy Joystick Module to switch menus. https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/1005001551592489.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.7cc879d2sa2Gio&gatewayAdapt=glo2nld , X and Y analog and digital push. Can not find how to use it. Any help?

At the moment there would be a couple of manual steps, but I think with minimal effort I can get the plugin to do everything, I'll have a go at the plugin today and see if I can get it to do back and next as well. I thought it already did but turns out it doesn't.

If everything is contained in the plugin as I expect, you could probably just drop the xml file in the right place once I fix it up and it would work even before the next release comes out.

I have created a better analog joystick plugin, and a new example to go with it, they'll be fully released in 2.4.1, but the plugin xml is attached, it may complain if you edit the threshold fields, but it should still generate OK. If you wanted to try it:

1. Before starting, make sure the tcMenu designer is closed.
2. Navigate to the following directory from your home directory, in a command prompt: ~/.tcmenu/plugins/core-display
3. Make a full backup of the current contents of any files you change
4. Replace "analogJoystickInput.xml" with the version attached here.
5. Start designer and the new analog plugin should be available as an input plugin from the code generator.

I'm assuming you've gone through the getting started guide already, if not probably the best start. The analog joystick is chosen during the code generation phase, the screenshot shows what settings I used.

There's now no need for the above steps, 2.5.0 was released today, it has the plugin packaged with it.
