Recent addition of select_input_source event is a very welcome change for those of us who need to use two keyboard layouts on a regular basis.

Assigning this event to a Caps Lock key is a natural choice since its LED can act as an indicator for the currently selected input source.

However, with this configuration the LED just stays off:

"to": [
  {
    "select_input_source": {
      "input_source_id": "^org.sil.ukelele.keyboardlayout.t.russian-ilyabirmantypography$"
    }
  }
],

And with this one it blinks shortly and still remains off:

"to": [
  {
    "key_code": "caps_lock"
  }
 ],
"to_if_alone": [
  {
    "select_input_source": {
      "input_source_id": "^org.sil.ukelele.keyboardlayout.t.russian-ilyabirmantypography$"
    }
  }
],

Desired feature: an option to control whether the Caps Lock LED stays on or off after the event;

Relevant Karabiner Elements version: 11.5.4 (beta channel)

I would also like this. I have the caps_lock working as a toggle modifier, and it would be really helpful to know when it's in the on state. For me the caps_lock LED is never on, onced remapped.

I'm in the same situation. caps_lock is my toggle key but I often don't remember in which state I'm. If not controlling led, then maybe some menubar/desktop indicator?

Ideally, we'd be able to control the Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock LEDs, so keyboards with all three can express up to eight states, instead of just two.

I'm using CAPS LOCK as a Microphone Mute since I'm in a lot of conference calls in a noisy apartment. Would be so happy to have the LED indicate whether i'm on hot mic!

Actually I just fixed my issue by adding the caps_lock back. if you remap keys, the original key is never pressed, which it needs to set the led state.

+1 for this, LED as indicator for a certain input source would be awesome

Bumping this to attract some attention given other recent fixes for LED support in Mojave.
