fl_get_input() should do it. You can also set FL_RETURN_ALWAYS or
FL_RETURN_CHANGED with the fl_set_input_return() function to modify
the default behavior of the Input object.

I personally rarely use callback functions for handling Input objects
but rather tend to process all input when the "do it" action
(generally the press of a button) takes place. Then I use the
fl_get_input() functions to read the input and at that point I do
whatever processing is necessary.

Refer to the manual section on the Input object for more details.
