Sub-Object Isolate Toggle

One of those things which is possible when you know where the buttons are, but it should really be on a hot-key. Assign this to a shortcut key to be able to isolate within subobject mode, Vertex/Face/Element 🙂

–Toggles Isolation of editable Poly subobject face selection
if isEPolyIsolate == undefined do global isEPolyIsolate = false

if selection.count == 1 and classof selection[1] == Editable_Poly do
if not isEPolyIsolate then
with redraw off
actionMan.executeAction 0 “40044”
$.EditablePoly.Hide #CurrentLevel
actionMan.executeAction 0 “40044”
isEPolyIsolate = true
$.EditablePoly.unhideAll #CurrentLevel
isEPolyIsolate = false

    Hello, I am not sure on how to use this, I tried to make it a script but I got an error (Type error: Call needs function or class, got: undefined) so I guess I should put it somewhere else but I’m not sure. Can I have some help?
    Thank you.
