Simply put, how would I research and find the solution for these types of problems:


The general problem is that you need to map one value to another value.

The specifics of the values for each is not really relevant. The process however, obviously, is.

Being a bit more specific to your problem you want to map a 'string' (text) to something.

I can't actually tell what you want to map to. But lets say, for example, that it is enum.

Then there are two choices.
1. The string must match the name of the enum exactly. You can get by without case sensitivity but otherwise it must be the same.
2. You MUST provide code that maps from the string to the enum.

Note that there are NO other choices. Pick one.

Lets say you want to pick 1. Then you cannot name a key 'A Key' because a space is not something that can appear in a enum name. You can google for how to convert from string to enum and back again.

Or if you pick 2. There are various ways to do this. But one way actually ends up looking like solution 1. So for example you would have a table that looks like what I posted below. You would read it then match the first value. Then use the second value to create an enum (like I said similar to 1.)

'A Key', 'KeyA'
'B Key', 'KeyB'
'= Key', 'KeyEquals'


Or you could just create a switch

switch(keyValue)
{
  case "A Key": return KeyValue.KeyA;
  case "B Key": return KeyVAlue.KeyB;


There are variations on this.
