Show figma UI (cmd + \) automatically as soon as plugin is opened

Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to trigger Figma keyboard shortcuts as soon as you open a plugin. One of the functionalities I want to achieve is Show/Hide Figma UI with the opening/closing of the plugin that I am building. Basically, I want to achieve the cmd + \ effect but automatically, When I open or close the plugin.

This is not possible.

On second thought, You can assign the plugin in BTT to a hotkey and assign an additional trigger (show Figma UI) before or after opening the plugin

Sounds interesting. Sorry, but I did not understand what you meant by BTT.
