keyframeRegionScaleKeyCtx( contextName , [exists=boolean], [history=boolean], [image1=string], [image2=string], [image3=string], [name=string], [scaleSpecifiedKeys=boolean], [type=string])

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

keyframeRegionScaleKeyCtx is undoable, queryable, and editable.

This command creates a context which may be used to scale keyframes within the keyframe region of the dope sheet editor
