Is their anyway to create an icon (via mapkey) that would allow you to use parameters????

Example: I have an assembly that moves up and down. I created relations that when I type in UP in the parameter the assembly moves up. When I type in DOWN in the parameter, the assembly goes down.

I want an icon that I click on called UP so that the assembly moves up.

I've heard of it being done....what do you all think?
If you made a mapkey of the UP and Down selections you could then go into Utilities, Customize Screen, Commands Tab, scroll the Catagories bar down to the bottom where you'll see mapkeys, pick out the name of you mapkey, apply a icon to it and drag it up onto any of your toolbars.
