In this tutorial, Josh Modglin walks through how to create and modify a command within the custom user interface file. The instructor discusses how to create a command, assign an icon, and how to write the command macro including the use of specialized symbols. In addition, Josh demonstrates the creation of a new command macro.
- [Instructor] So to add or modify a command…we go to our command list within our…customized user interface dialog.…There's so many commands that are listed…it may be easier to search.…So if we search for the fill it command…we find it right here.…Better yet what if we create a new command?…We'll name this new command FR5.…And we'll find the fill it icon in the list here…and apply it to our new command…and we'll name this fill it radius five.…
The key to understanding how to modify…or create a new command really falls within…the macro line here in our properties.…We have to understand some of the symbology going on here.…So the bracket symbol with the C represents escape.…So what we have drawn in or written right now…is two presses of the escape key.…That makes sure we have no command active.…And then we're going to begin the fill it command…and the underscore really just defines…that it will cross all languages…and if I press the semi colon key,…it represents a return.…
So it's as if right now we are pressing…the escape key twice, starting the fill it command…
