Is it possible to create a mapkey that would run the evaulate command within the relation editor?
I can use the button in the relation editor "=?" but I would love to have a keyboard short cut for this command.
I'm guessing it would have to be a function key like $F4.
I can create the mapkey and it works but only when it's ran from the mapkey management window, but not when I press F4 on my keyboard.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't think the mapkey is a problem per se, but I don't think you can call a mapkey when the relations dialog is open.
The problem is that your mapkey will not be evaluated when the Relations input field is active - makes sense, since the keyboard strokes are being used to write the relations!
One work-around: assign the mapkey to the quick-access toolbar at the 1st location. Then ALT+1 keyboard shortcut will activate this mapkey...
I don't think that will work. The ALT key will impact the relations dialog, not refer to the main menus.
The function keys do not work as a keyboard stroke, so I thought if I used those then it would work.
