[modifier=] in macro, available bindings?

i'd like to be able to use the following modifiers in macros:

control-alt
control-shift
shift-alt

but cant find the proper syntax for having 2 key modifiers to run an action.

also, when i use
[modifier=ctrl] /cast spell1
i must hold control and CLICK the button the macro is on, instead of holding control and pressing the KEY the button is on. shift, alt and nomodifier work fine - i can just hold the modifier and press the key the macro is on and the proper spell fires. i use Bongos bar mod if that makes a difference.

Thanks for any help!

From what I understand of Blizzard's implementation of the [modifier=$key] macro option, it only operates on a mouse click, so the bar mod you have doesn't have anything to do with it.

I'm not familiar enough with Blizzard's new macro implementation to tell you if a mod could be written to make it apply to keystrokes, as well, but from my casual observation, I suspect that such a change would have to be made by Blizzard.

I could be wrong, however, and if anyone knows otherwise, please fill us in.

well i can use shift- and alt- modifiers without having to click the button. the control- modifier is the only one that makes me click the button!

very strange indeed. maybe it's a mod feature that allows the key combo to be used instead of the click?

i hate clicking, i do like 95%+ from teh keyboard so if i can find a way around clicking, i will!

thanks

Interesting. That gave me a though, which I'll have to go test. Could be that the modifiers have been made to work with keypresses since I tested it last. I would guess that ctrl+$key doesn't work because the default keybindings for pet commands are ctrl+{1-8}. If you don't use a pet, or just want to test it, the first thing I'd try is unbinding those buttons and seeing what happens.

Sadly, I can't test it myself until lunch.

ah, thanksfor the idea. i didnt think that those key combinations would be alreadybound to other actions.

i'll check it out as soon as i can get in game.

any ideas on how to do the other part of my goal? using shift-alt-key and control-alt-key combos?

Cogwheel on the blizz UI forums answered my double-keybind question:

/cast [modifier:ctrl, modifier:alt] blah

will make you press both ctrl & alt.
yay

now to just figure out this control-key thing!
