  • bool - 0 or 1
  • joystick - 1 or 2
  • button - number of button to check

joystick_check_button() checks to see if a button is currently held down on a joystick and returns either (not held down) or 1 (held down). It accepts two arguments. First, the joystick to check. Since Game Maker only supports two joysticks, this must either be 1 or 2. The second argument is the number of the button to check.
