Using Studiologic Sledge as midi controller?

Hi, I’m very new to Cubase and I recently started recording with Elements 11. I’m trying to connect my Studiologic Sledge 2.0 and use it as a controller for VST instruments, but I can’t seem to make it work :’( I did watch some tutorials on connecting midi controllers but there is no midi input no matter what I do, Although I think it is possible to use Sledge as a midi controller. If I could get any help regarding this it would be rly nice.
