Hotkey to toggle Marquee or Drag component selections

I go back and forth between the default Maya Marquee and Drag tools with camera based selection so often that I thought I’d write a quick run-time command to make a hotkey. Here is a quick video to demonstrate how you could do this. I was talking to an old colleague the other day who asked if Maya had gotten rid of the component selection, which I believe it was on by default when you moved the mouse over an edge, vertex, or face in older versions of Maya. It’s still there, but now found under the ‘drag’ option’ which you also have the ability to toggle.
