This would make the key mapping a lot more powerful. Missing this feature.

It is possible to map a key to run a python script in Kodi, and then have the script check for various conditions. It depends on what the final goal is.

Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.

HOW-TO: You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , etc
