The error says the tool doesn't know what EditPush, and probably EditPop mean. Are those the correct command calls? In my existing key bindings file I find "WVOPushSchematic" and I don't find a pop command at all.
Using WVOPushSchematic works like a charm, don't know what the pop command is, it isnt: WVOPopSchematic, EditPop, PopSchematic, Pop
Thanks for your help Mentor_Shannonk - thats got the Push sorted .
The other functions I am trying to assign to Mouse Strokes are:
- Close the current sheet
- Open the Select Filter
- Report the selected objects (to act as if enetering OD in the command window)
Does anyone know what these commands are or where the available commands are defined?
- Close the current sheet

I made the following work:
Bindings("Stroke").AddStroke "258", "WVOPushSchematic"
Bindings("Stroke").AddStroke "456", "FileClose"
Bindings("Stroke").AddStroke "32147", "ViewSelectionFilter"
I can't get the od(etail) or pop to work as strokes but they will work as single keystrokes because we can tell AddKeyBinding that they are commands:
Bindings("Schematic").AddKeyBinding "p", "Pop", Cmd, Key
Bindings("Schematic").AddKeyBinding "v", "odetail", Cmd, Key
Unfortunately there is not a "list" of available (and working) commands, menu picks and whatnots.
There is a list of Command Line commands in the DxDesigner Reference Manual, many of these will work as keystrokes, but not as mouse strokes.
Many of the menu picks also work, File > Close becomes FileClose, View > Other Windows > Selection Filter becomes ViewSelectionFilter. But Edit > Pop doesn't work as EditPop.
The "whatnots" are the kind of info that we can pick out of the different key binding files. WVOPushSchematic is one of those whatnots.
Thanks Mentor_Shannonk - all sorted :-) The FileClose works well enough as an alternative to POP.
Why does Mentor not document the available commands for strokes, mouse buttons and keys?
Sounds too easy...
In DxDesigner, use the commands Help > Show Bindings and Help > Show Strokes to show you the available Key Bindings and Mouse Strokes.
Sorry too quick...
You can also find all of the information on Keys, Mouse strokes and commands in the document "Dxdesigner_ref.pdf" in the \docs\pdfdocs directory of your \MentorGraphics install directory.
sorry Vern, I do not find e.g. "WVOPushSchematic" in this document for EE7.9.4.
We are looking for list of possible commands to add to new keys or strokes for my users...
For example: What is the command name for "goto parent sheet"?
