Hello! I want to make an interaction text like "Press F to interact" but with the key that the player has set to be the interaction input, not only F.

I've tried InputMap.get_action_list("interact")[0].as_text() but it doesn't seem to work.

If you using physical keys, try this:


Elif you're using regular keys, it's better to use this:


If neither of them works, maybe the problem in something else. Post the code where you trying to use this text.
