Binding key to project-usertool menu item
« on: June 09, 2015, 05:39:11 pm »
Hello,

I have Version 19.02 of Slickedit 2014 Pro and have what I think is a simple question, but cannot seem to figure it out.. I am using SlickEdit with a Visual Studio 2012 SOlution file that I have loaded as my workspace in slickedit etc. Things work fine, however, I would like to bind a keyboard shortcut key to the "Build Solution" project build menu item.. I cannot seem to figure out how to do that.. I know it is one of the Project-usertools but not sure how to specify in the keyboard shortcut dialog the name of the tools (i.e. "Build Solution"). 

Thanks,

Andrew

Dennis

This is the general recommended technique.

Macro > Record macro
Build > Build Solution
Macro > Stop Macro Recording
Name the macro something like "user_project_build_solution"
Check "Allow in read only mode"
Click "Save and Bind to key"
Type the key sequence you want to bind it to in the "Key sequence" text box.
Click Add...
Click OK to close the key bindings dialog.
