Pygame, get key object from character


I'm making a multiplayer platformer/shooter/brawl game with pygame and I'd like for the players to easily change their keybinds (such as from a config file).

I haven't been able to find a way to read a character string and use that as a transition to the pygame.K_xx objects as of now so I ask the community.

Any leads ?


With the constants of <a href="https://www.pygame.org/docs/ref/key.html" rel="nofollow">this list</a> you can use

getattr(pygame, 'K_'+ mychar)

to access a constant by name.
