Default VR zoom - possible to bind key to hotas?

Is it somehow possible to bind the zoom function to one of the hotas buttons? It is bound to my Oculus touch controller by default, but that's useless during combat situations.
I allready tried all zoom key's I could find in the "controls setup"

(I found several topics where this has been discussed, but I don't find the answer)

It's possible - on the drop down menu at the top left in controls you're looking for "UI Layer", there is a zoom function in there that works in VR.

Yes and while you are in the UI layer binding VR zoom to a button, go ahead and bind VR-Recenter to a button as well. Very handy.

You can also bind mouse functions in there to buttons. I have left click, right click, and scroll assigned to buttons on my Warthog throttle in there.

Excellent!
And good idea to map the mouse buttons (I still use my old Thrustmaster Cougar hotas so I need all buttons available )

You have the mouse scroll mapped to 2 buttons ? Or a rotary ?

Two buttons on my VKB MCG Pro grip. I have a 4 way hat plus push on right side of grip, have all my mouse functions assigned to it.

Hopefully, u use it with a modifier key, that u dont have to waste important buttons on a joystick for mouse functions...

Mouse mapped to stick, probably one of the buttons i use most. I map it to DMS switch and the zoom to the G overide. Tried a bunch of combos and couldnt find something that works better for me

Feels great to zoom in and click a few buttons with hands on throttle and stick

Well let´s say the T-50 joystick has several buttons and, even more important, quite a few axis.
