Mandatory properties

Inherits all properties from PrototypeBase.

action

Type: string
One of "toggle-alt-mode", "undo", "copy", "cut", "paste", "import-string", "toggle-personal-roboport", "toggle-equipment-movement-bonus", "spawn-item" and "lua".

icon

Type: Sprite
Scales to fit a 16x16-pixel square.
Note: The scale that can be defined in the sprite may not behave as expected because the game always scales the sprite to fill the GUI slot.

Optional properties

item_to_spawn

Name of a Prototype/Item. The item to create when clicking on a shortcut with the action set to "spawn-item". The item must have the "spawnable" flag set.

technology_to_unlock

Type: string
Name of a Prototype/Technology. The technology that must be researched before this shortcut can be used.

toggleable

Must be enabled for the Factorio API to be able to set the toggled state on the shortcut button, see LuaPlayer.set_shortcut_toggled.

Default: ""
Name of a custom input or vanilla control. Used to show the keybind in the tooltip of the shortcut.

small_icon

Type: Sprite
Default: Uses #icon definition
The icon used in the panel for visible shortcuts, when the shortcut is usable.
Note: The scale that can be defined in the sprite may not behave as expected because the game always scales the sprite to fill the GUI slot.

disabled_icon

Type: Sprite
Default: Uses #icon definition
The icon used when the shortcut is shown in the quickbar, and is not usable.
Note: The scale that can be defined in the sprite may not behave as expected because the game always scales the sprite to fill the GUI slot.

Type: Sprite
Default: Uses #disabled_icon definition
The icon used in the panel for visible shortcuts, when the shortcut is not usable.
Note: The scale that can be defined in the sprite may not behave as expected because the game always scales the sprite to fill the GUI slot.
