Are there any keyins for the DataGroup System tools?
While using the DataGroup System there are keyins available as alternatives to each tool icon in the DataGroup System toolbox as well as tools unique to the Building Designer > DataGroup - Bulding Components pull-down menu:
DataGroup Catalog Editor: dg defeditor
Add Instance Data: dg add data
Modify Instance Data: dgex modify data
DataGroup System Validator: dg validate
Refresh DataGroup System: dg refresh
RFA Interpreter Wizard: tfpaell wizard
DataGroup Definition Editor: dg defeditor
There is also a simple workflow to determine whether a tool or command has an available keyin.
1. Choose Utilities > Macro > Create BASIC Macro.
2. Every action you perform from that moment on with be recorded until you hit the Stop button.
3. Once you have finished recording your macro choose Utilities > Macro > MicroStation BASIC.
4. Choose the Macro you just created and click the Edit button. If there is a keyin available you will see text similar to:
"Send a keyin that can be a command string
MbeSendKeyin "DG DEFEDITOR""
