First of all, maybe this is not a feature request but then I couldn't find the right documentation or I'm doing really difficult.

Facts:
I've got two rotary encoders on my steering wheel and when the encoder to the next position I can register button press + release.

Each encoder has 12 positions

Goal:
What I want to do is the following.
If encoder A is on position 1 then I want to see a custom traction control widget and use encoder B to change the traction control
If encoder A is on position 2 then I want to see a throttle shaping widget and use encoder B to change the throttle behaviour 
etc etc

Solution that I had in mind:
On your dash you can add a button which can emulate a key when you press it. Can we get something like this when we press a button or change an encoder on the steeringwheel? This allows a reusing the same buttons and encoders when they have a different context. I think this would would be super powerfull and opens a lot of new doors.

I would love to hear your feedback.

Many thanks in advance,

Leon

Agreed. This is what I need to make a proper F1 style steering wheel function. Very frustrating that it appears not to be possible due to "security reasons".

I have to admit that I found out after researching a lot that this is I think also a particular feature some steeringwheels just have by default. 

For example: I have the Bavarian Simtec Omega One which doesn't have this feature however the The Omega Pro has encoders that could be configured to send a constant pulse.
