We are trying to map how a user will see key presses for custom hotkeys. However, there is some debate which I cannot find a standard for:
How to display the number pad keys:
- num1, num2, numPLUS, etc
- 1(NUMPAD), 2(NUMPAD), PLUS(NUMPAD)
I prefer the second option as all caps is being used for all other keys, and the NUMPAD is easier to understand than
So, I am taking the discussion here. Is there a standard I am missing?
We have a hotkey UI that shows the user the keypress actions that will occur:
ie. When they press Shift and 7 we display "SHIFT + 7"
But, the number pad keys on a keyboard are mapped to a different keycode, so we cannot tell the user that if they press the
7 on the numberpad that it is
SHIFT + 7, because in reality it is
SHIFT + 7 (NUMPAD)
