you can make a mel script to do anything you want.....

i cant say off hand how to do it as i am buzy.....

glass is not easy...but if u installed the shader lib.there are some glass shaders...good plcae to start

you can make a hotkey ...
window>settings>hotkeys and assign a hotkey
to that command...
very important thing for you glass shader is the index of refraction which is 1.53 for normal glass...

mr.Venu, you can download the Glass material
from Alias|Wavefront's web page

As far as it concernes the glass shader,
you should set the trasparency to its minimum
and play with refraction a bit...and maybe with the reflectivity attribute. I recomend you to set the diffuse value of the material above 1, some transparent noise to its color attribute. Thus, the shader must be doublesided.
Hope this helps.

there are multiple ways to create glass
this here is a very simple glass setup with standard maya shader:

type: PhongE shader
color: 1 1 1
transparency: 0 0 .85
diffuse: .5
roughness: 1
highlight size .1
spec color: 1 1 1
reflectivity: .5

dont forget to enable refractions in raytrace options (shader and globals)

refractive index: 1.55
reflection limit: 2

all the other parameters you can leave at default values !

btw, if you are aiming for a really realistic looking glass, i suggest try with mr dielectric material and render it with mental ray
