    Hi all, I was wondering about the possibility of capturing
    information
    triggered by external switches into a computer. My primary
    programming
    language is C#.

    What I would like is to have 1 or more buttons which can be pressed
    (One or
    more buttons can be pressed at the same time) and I would like to
    record which button has been pressed and how many times the button
    has
    been pressed.

    Obviously this would involve some hardware (USB connection????) /
    software interaction so any pointers on where to start with
    connecting
    a series of buttons to a computer and reading the buttons would be
    appreciated!


    Thanks for any / all help

    What you are describing is called a keyboard :)
    If you want something other than the keyboard, you could try the
    joystick socket which has 8 inputs, 4 of them are configured for
    ordinary mometary switches.

    Bye.
