Cycle between Object and Component Mode Through Script

Hi All,

Is there a way to map two keys
One (1) for the switching between Object Mode and Component Mode and the other (2)for switching between Vertex, Edge and Face mode?

So far I got this code for the first one

selectMode -object;
selectMode -component;

The problem with this is that I cannot get the current mode if it is object or component.
Basically, the process would run as:
(1) Check whether object or component
(2) If object, change to component
(3) If component, change to object.

For the second one, thanks to this thread

if (`selectMode -q -o` == 1)
 inViewMessage -pos topCenter -msg "Vert" -fade;
else if (`selectType -q -pv` == 1)
 inViewMessage -pos topCenter -msg "Edge" -fade;
else if (`selectType -q -pe` == 1)
 inViewMessage -pos topCenter -msg "Face" -fade;
else if (`selectType -q -pf` == 1)
 inViewMessage -pos topCenter -msg "Object" -fade;

It works. But the problem is that it maps all the command to one key rather than my preferred two keys.
I tried deleting the last last "else if" statement for the object but after that the script does not work any longer.

Is there a way around this?

Thank you for your time.
