Add hotkey info tab to menu

Reported by: Funkencool Owned by: Bluestone

At first just a list would be really nice, but in the future I'd like to make them all configurable or at least most of them (like all engine ones).

I started working on a widget then realized I don't actually know where to find/change any of the defaults. I thought they were in uikeys.txt but mine's blank, so I guess not.

I don't actually know very many (hence why I'd like to make this), so hopefully someone can help me out a little on the planning stage for this one.

The places where keys are defined are many and varied. In the past it was all uikeys but now widgets/gadgets also handle keyboard input. I'm not sure how feasible it is to make all keys configurable.

The list of (nearly) all BA keybinds is here:

Then for now I'll just try to get a list in game. Though I might look for some feedback later about which ones people would most like to configure.

I wonder if it would be possible to get a list of registered actions (and the keys bound to it) from the action handler, which is what I assume most widgets/gadgets use for hotkeys?

comment:5 by Funkencool, 9 years ago

O nm I guess it's bound with the 'bind' command, so I guess the question would instead be is there a way to get spring to dump those bindings?

comment:6 by Bluestone, 9 years ago

Possibly, but many widget/gadgets don't use bind or share info with the actionHandler, because (especially for complex input) its easier/cleaner code to handle mouse/keyboard input directly through the callins.
