First, I did ask someone help me to write a script for me so when I press keyboard and it will automatically load specific scheme that I saved for me.

And I also can create my own shortcut key for certain option instead to access from the menu.

But after migrate to VX, when I hit my shortcut key, the scheme under display control took about 2 seconds to load which is slow for me.

Just wondering is anyone here can help me to review on the script as below is there any wrong on the script that need to update for VX?

There is no delay time when I used this script in EE7.9.5.

Really hope someone can help me on this, appreciate and thanks.



Below are some examples:

Option Explicit

Dim My_App       ' The application

Dim My_Board     ' The Board


Set My_App = Application

Set My_Board = My_App.ActiveDocument

' Add the new key binding.


  keyBindTables.AddKeyBinding "CTRL+SHIFT+Q", "Edit->Modify->Padstack Processor", BindMenu, BindAccelerator

  keyBindTables.AddKeyBinding "CTRL+SHIFT+W", "Route->Assign Net Name", BindMenu, BindAccelerator


  keyBindTables.AddKeyBinding "CTRL+SHIFT+A", "run C:\WDIR\Scripts\displaycontrol.vbs ""Loc: ALL_ON""", BindCommand, BindAccelerator

  keyBindTables.AddKeyBinding "CTRL+SHIFT+Z", "run C:\WDIR\Scripts\displaycontrol.vbs ""Loc: ALL_Off""", BindCommand, BindAccelerator


  keyBindTables.AddKeyBinding "CTRL+UP", "ms dx=0,0.5", BindCommand, BindAccelerator

  keyBindTables.AddKeyBinding "CTRL+DOWN", "ms dx=0,-0.5", BindCommand, BindAccelerator

Scrip for "displaycontrol.vbs":


Option Explicit


Dim scriptArgsObj, pcbAppObj, pcbDocObj, viewsColl, viewObj, schemeStr


Set scriptArgsObj = ScriptHelper.Arguments

schemeStr = scriptArgsObj.Item(3)


Set pcbAppObj = Application

Set pcbDocObj = pcbAppObj.ActiveDocument


If ValidateServer(pcbDocObj) = True Then

    Set viewsColl = pcbDocObj.Views(epcbViewDefaultView)

    For Each viewObj in viewsColl

        Call viewObj.DisplayControl.LoadScheme(schemeStr)

        Exit For


End If



' Function that returns a licensed doc object


Function ValidateServer(doc)

  Dim keyInt

  Dim licenseTokenInt

  Dim licenseServer


  'Ask Expedition's document for the key

  keyInt = doc.Validate (0)


  'Get license server

  Set licenseServer = CreateObject ("MGCPCBAutomationLicensing.Application")


  'Ask the license server for the license token

  licenseTokenInt = licenseServer.GetToken (keyInt)


  'Release license server

  Set licenseServer = nothing


  'Turn off error messages (validate may fail if the token is incorrect)

  On Error Resume Next



  'Ask the document to validate the license token


  If Err Then

  ValidateServer = False


  ValidateServer = True

  End If

End Function
