use the following coding in your script:
Pushbutton (toolbar) "Material column"
Set V[NewCursorPosition] ""
...and the InputScript "va01_setcursor2.txt":
Set V[NewCursorPosition] "cell[All
With Ctrl+F12 the cursor is now set into the Material column.
Previously Ctrl+A could not be assigned by GuiXT, but we have
added this to the version (2002 Q3 11).
This solution is not a local frontend action. The GuiXT
"Tab" command would provide an alternative solution
for fast data entry.
