Icon2 Shortcut key to Fuel, Bat., CO2... dials?

I can't seem to find the shortcut key to the informational dials of Fuel, Battery and CO2! (Chief Engineer Dials)
Also can't find the command name to create the shortcut at the commands_en.cfg file.


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks Anvar1061,


But unfortunately that didn't help much.


The main problem remains, and that is that I don't know the command name for the function of showing fuel/battery/co2 dials!

I'm using the original stock interface.
Don't like the modded ones.


Just need to make a direct shortcut key to show fuel/battery/co2 dials.
In the stock interface that particular action is two clicks (too many) away

Not sure what you mean by "not complicate our things overly here".


All I need is for someone to tell me the Command Name for the function of toggling on/off the view of the fuel/battery/co2 dials, so that I can edit Commands_en.cfg and add a key shortcut for it.


Even using the tool you linked on your first reply, I still need to know that Command Name to select it on the list.

That's the section of the background image of the composition of the dials.
There are other sections at that file that relate to that one and that overall compose the component, but none of them has the info that I'm looking for, which is the name of the command which shows/hides the dials.


The shortcut keys are mapped at the Commands_en.cfg file.

Here's an example: (with Toggle_ce_dials_view as the name of the command)



[Cmd999]
Name=Toggle_ce_dials_view
Ctxt=1
Key0=0x49,,"I"


The problem is I don't know the real name of Toggle_ce_dials_view, so I can't get it to work.
