How to writea Mapkey for loading another Mapkey

Hello!

I need help for the WRITING of Mapkey to load (import) another mapkey.

Of course I can record a Mapkey for this, but the content is to big (I think).

Im sure, there is more slim way for this.

Actually I wish just to import a mapkey without to open a window, browse and select the file and close the window.

How looks it?

 

Thank you!

If you are asking how to call one mapkey from another the second mapkey is simply proceeded with a % character

!====================================================
!== Mapkey to call another Mapkey "abc" (mcm)==
!=====================================================
mapkey mcm @MAPKEY_LABELThis mapkey calls another mapkey;\
mapkey(continued) ~%abc;

If you are asking how to load in a mapkey from a config.pro file into session then you record one clicking File-> Options -> Configuration Editor -> Import/Export -> Import configuration file

The mapkey will change depending on what version of Creo you are using but it will look generally like this:

mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `appl_casc`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `appl_casc`;~ Command `ProCmdRibbonOptionsDlg` ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `ribbon_options_dialog` `PageSwitcherPageList` 1 `ConfigLayout`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `ribbon_options_dialog` `ConfigLayout.ImportExportBtn`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Close `ribbon_options_dialog` `ConfigLayout.ImportExportBtn`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `ribbon_options_dialog` `ConfigLayout.Open`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Trail `UI Desktop` `UI Desktop` `DLG_PREVIEW_POST` `file_open`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `file_open` `file_open`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Update `file_open` `Inputname` `C:\\folder\\config.pro`;\

Thank you!
