I have a StaticBody2d that i want to detect when i press a key while moused over it. I am able to use _input_event() to detect mouse clicks but it does not seem to work for key presses. Ideally I want to detect an InputEventAction.

This works for mouse clicks, but no key press events are printed.

   func _input_event(viewport, event, shape_idx):
	if event is InputEventMouseButton :
		if event.button_index == BUTTON_LEFT and event.is_pressed():
			emit_signal("interact", self, tool_needed)

Yeah, that’s because bodies don’t detect key presses. You need to use the _input or _unhandled_input function.
