What's a hat switch?

You can control servos by selecting the servo ports and adjusting their range. Min is a number lower than max.
The hat switch is the little thumb controled joystick on the top of most joysticks some call it a POV stick or control this is the main joystick that i use
United Kingdom
Open joystick options, go to buttons, press the button on the joystick (or in this case stick) in the direction you want and it should highlight the button associated with it. I'd assume that "hat switch" is classed as 8 buttons.
its has no evect on the botton setting its a digatal controler just like the main joystick i have looked at though the settings and theres nothing in there at all for the hat switch control
Theres nothing in the logitech software to assign macros or keys to a hat switch direction?
