These functions will only return true if one of the keys is considered a modifier. If the code executing is started with Shift/Control/Alt as part of the key binding, it will return nil. Govtgeek (talk) 01:30, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
These functions actually return the value 1 at this time (when evaluated true). After the WoD 6.0 API goes into affect the values returned will be boolean true and false (nil).
