    I don't believ it. It that really a single sentence? And I always thought German sentences were the longest in the world.

    Honestly: I don't get it. Could you please rephrase your question in a more understandable way?
    - what do you have?
    - what did you accomplish so far?
    - what are you trying to achieve (your expectations), what doesn't work as expected (in which way)?
    - show us a schematic of your wiring for better understanding.

    I've never heard of an "ON-ON-ON" switch before.



    First search result in Google gives this for on-on-on.

    Its a DPDT switch.

    when i connect this 2 wires i mention before and flip the switch all the way up (2 clicks) i show on my win7 screen that my button 1 on my joystick is press and when i flip the switch all the way down it show as unpressed

    You don't use a switch for that. For momentary action you use a pushbutton.
