Mission designers want to block certain key actions in their missions/game mode.
Reasons are to avoid abuse like TAB lock or commander locking, or for gameplay reasons,
like to disable sprint.

Right now people do this via displyAddEH on the main display.
However this method is problematic as a) mouse and joystick input cannot be blocked,
and it blocks other key actions on the same key too.


disableKeyAction "KEYACTIONNAME" true/false

(false reverts the block again)

By key actions are meant all items of CfgDefaultKeysMapping.
