Mapkey using right button menu

Hi all,

I'm not able to create a mapkey where I have to activate a command present in a right button menu, after selection a model.

Eg.

mapkey _test ~ Timer `UI Desktop` `UI Desktop` `popupMenuRMBTimerCB`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Close `rmb_popup` `PopupMenu`;~ Command `user_popup_item_cmd`;

That command is not present in any other place on the ribbon.

Any possible solution?

Thanks

What exactly are you trying to do? It's hard to tell from the mapkey commands what is going on.

Hello,

I think that it is not possible to record right button menu click into a mapkey. But I am not quite sure.

whats your objective?

Re: Mapkey using right button menu

It's possible to use an RMB click in a mapkey, as it has always been, but I would strongly advise not to use it.

I used to make mapkeys in WF2. In the beginning I used a lot of RMB clicks, but sometimes these mapkeys would just stop working in the middle of a session. When I reprogrammed them using the menu bar, they always worked flawless.

On Creo 2 however, I haven't made a lot of mapkeys yet, Since THEY stole our menu bar, it's gotten a lot harder to make them decent.

You probably want to make a mapkey that automates something in the dimension properties, right? I've launched the same question a while ago, but never got the answer I was hoping for...

Re: Mapkey using right button menu

The goal of this mapkey is start a function of a auxiliary application, not an ootb command, this is why I wrote that is present only in RMB menu.

The mapkey has to work in assembly and part environment, not in drawing.

Thanks.

Re: Mapkey using right button menu

What do you mean with an auxiliary application? Is it something like a script?

Re: Mapkey using right button menu

It's a externnal application created with Pro/TOOLKIT. I register it by .dat files

Re: Mapkey using right button menu

Are you selecting a model before calling the mapkey?

I tried the same here and the mapkey worked fine.

mapkey test ~ Timer `UI Desktop` `UI Desktop` `popupMenuRMBTimerCB`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Close `rmb_popup` `PopupMenu`;~ Command `EMX_MOD_COMP`;

Or maybe some problem in your application.

I made a short video:

Good luck,

Re: Mapkey using right button menu

Hi Jose

yes, i'm able to reproduce what you have done in the video, but the problem is that after Creo restarting the mapkey doesn't work.

To make it work I have to do before a manually click with RMB and then it always works...
