TL;DR Summary
I use space and enter as buttons for jump and shoot respectively. I have a checkbutton in my game for toggling the visibility of a display. It turns out space and enter also toggle my checkbutton.
Hi everyone

I use space and enter as buttons for jump and shoot respectively. I have a checkbutton in my game for toggling the visibility of a display. It turns out space and enter also toggle my checkbutton. I didn't code for space and enter to do this. I can't find anywhere on the inspector where keys are assigned to the checkbutton.

So far as I'm aware, no other keys toggle my checkbutton. I could change my keys for jump and shoot, but space and enter seem to be the best keys for this.

Is there anyway to stop space and enter from toggling my checkbutton?Thanks

Clunky fix, but you could use a keyboard re-mapper.

What language and UI framework are you using?

place your checkbox gui stuff on a separate screen from your game so that won't happen.

I'm assuming you're using javascript in a web app.

Here's the Godot Engine info on checkbox

Maybe by using a checkbutton and toggling it with code will solve this issue as you have to use a mouse to give it focus and then to press it.

What if you do code those input events to do something with your checkbutton? Either "don't do anything" or "undo toggling action" might do the trick.

How can I stop space and enter from toggling my checkbutton in Godot?

To stop space and enter from toggling your checkbutton in Godot, you can use the following code snippet in your script:

Is there a built-in function in Godot to prevent space and enter from toggling a checkbutton?

Unfortunately, there is no built-in function in Godot to prevent space and enter from toggling a checkbutton. You will need to implement custom logic in your script to achieve this behavior.

Can I disable the checkbutton when space or enter is pressed in Godot?

Yes, you can disable the checkbutton when space or enter is pressed by connecting the input event signal of the checkbutton to a function in your script that disables the checkbutton when the space or enter key is pressed.

How can I handle key presses in Godot to prevent toggling of a checkbutton?

You can handle key presses in Godot by implementing the _input function in your script and checking for the space and enter keys. If either key is pressed, you can prevent the checkbutton from toggling by setting its disabled property to true.

Is there a way to customize the behavior of a checkbutton in Godot to prevent toggling on specific key presses?

Yes, you can customize the behavior of a checkbutton in Godot by extending the CheckButton class and implementing custom logic to prevent toggling on specific key presses. This allows you to have more control over the behavior of the checkbutton in your game or application.
