Help with Joystick use in widget

I have watched a bunch of tuts for this and this is the closets I have gotten to being able to use the gamepad to pick widget buttons. Not sure what is still wrong, I have to click the button with the mouse then the gamepad works.?? Thanks for any advise. Or a better way to achieve this.

Seems to be an issue uploading images at the moment. Sorry I will try to add it another way.
