Photoshop Add Layer Mask shortcut

Hi,

Is there any way to assign shortcut to "Add Layer Mask" button in the Layers Panel? I know you can assign a shortcut to Menu > Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All and it will give you a Layer Mask. But, if you have a selection and press the shortcut, it will only add a Layer Mask without taking into consideration the selection, contrary to the "Add Layer Mask" button in the Layers Panel which will convert the selection into a mask.

thx

No, actually holding down Alt while pressing my shortcut key will not work either!
I'm guessing there is no shortcut for "Add Layer Mask" button in the Layers Panel. Maybe I should post a feature request for this.

What about the menu item Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal Selection?
