Question WoW Style Input Mapping

    I am currently working on action bars for my RPG and I want the player to have the ability to simply hover over a slot(on the action bar) and press the inputs for that specific slot. For example, hover over spell on bar and input control + k. Control +k now activates the spell in that slot.

    So far my thoughts are creating new actions per instance the player does this. The main issue is how do I get which inputs were given, including composites (1/2 modifiers).

    I actually found a basic solution but I do not know if there is a better built-in way. You can use this to see the latest input and just use that to create bindings.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. if (!eventPtr.IsA<StateEvent>() && !eventPtr.IsA<DeltaStateEvent>())
    2.             return;
    4.         var controls = device.allControls;
    5.         var buttonPressPoint = InputSystem.settings.defaultButtonPressPoint;
    6.         for (var i = 0; i < controls.Count; ++i)
    7.         {
    8.             var control = controls[i] as ButtonControl;
    9.             if (control == null || control.synthetic || control.noisy)
    10.                 continue;
    11.             if (control.ReadValueFromEvent(eventPtr, out var value) && value >= buttonPressPoint)
    12.             {
    13.                 if(!control.path.Contains("mouse"))
    14.                 {
    15.                     Debug.Log(control.path);
    16.                 }
    17.             }
    18.         }
