Convert a string into SDL_GamepadType enum.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3/SDL_gamepad.h>


SDL_GamepadType SDL_GetGamepadTypeFromString(const char *str);

Function Parameters

str string representing a SDL_GamepadType type

Return Value

Returns the SDL_GamepadType enum corresponding to the input string, or SDL_GAMEPAD_TYPE_UNKNOWN if no match was found.


This function is called internally to translate SDL_Gamepad mapping strings for the underlying joystick device into the consistent SDL_Gamepad mapping. You do not normally need to call this function unless you are parsing SDL_Gamepad mappings in your own code.


This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
