This command also returns values other than 0 and 1 (like 0.02 or 1.3). Any value greater than zero usually signals that the key or button is pressed. inputAction does not work reliably when used in RscDisplayMission's onKeyDown event handler (the same is probably true for other input related event handlers).

inputAction does not return the actual state of the queried key when a dialog screen is open. Instead, it will always return 0.

inputAction is capable of returning the state of analog inputs. This includes mouse, joystick, and even TrackIR. A joystick axis will return a value from 0 to 1, while mouse movement returns the rate of change, which can be > 1.

Right mouse click is currently not supported, but right mouse hold is. http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=25015
