Question Key Bindings Puzzle

https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/API_GetBinding

I've all my keys set to default.

The code sample for me just prints "Movement Keys > Turn Right (TURNRIGHT) is bound to: " So GetBinding is getting nothing.

https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/API_GetBindingByKey

I have "Blade of Justice" on 1.

bindingAction = GetBindingByKey("1")
print(bindingAction) prints nil

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Is there a WoW settting that is needed for GetBinding or GetBindingByKey to work?

Question

I have left J mapped to guild panel. Copying the code from the example I have:
Code:
key = "J"
bindingAction = GetBindingByKey(key)
print(bindingAction)
It prints 'nil' every time. No error. I'm baffled.

I'm guessing you're calling
Code:
GetBindingByKey(key)
when the client's loading starts. The keybinds information isn't available immediately, you need to wait for the
Code:
VARIABLES_LOADED
event.

Running your code in-game after login and loading gets the right keybinding for me.

Exclamation

Wow - thanks. I did indeed run it from a little addon I use to test things and the code was the first line.
