Description

Quickly set the locked and keyable state of attributes in the channel box. This tool is designed to be used as hotkeys for quickly locking and hiding attributes. It will operate on all visible attributes, unless specific channels are selected. When using to unhide attributes, it will unhide all standard transform attributes, and all user defined attributes.

Installation

Copy this file into your maya scripts directory, for example:

C:/Documents and Settings/user/My Documents/maya/scripts/ml_lockAndHideAttributes.py

Run the tool in a python shell or shelf button by importing the module, and then calling the primary function:

import ml_lockAndHideAttributes
ml_lockAndHideAttributes.ui()

Usage
