to.lazy

to.lazy is true or false. The default value is false.

If to.lazy is true and to.key_code is modifier flag such as "key_code": "left_shift", the to.key_code acts as lazy modifier.

The lazy modifier does not send own key events until another key is pressed together.

Example

The following json changes:

  • left_control to the lazy left control
  • left_control + m to return

Behavior of the json:

  • The left_control key event will not be sent when you press left_control alone.
  • Only the return key event will be sent when you press left_control + m.
  • You can use left_control for other keys such as left_control + a, left_control + b, etc.
