Default Animating IK on/off

A guy showed me once how to turn off an IK handle so you canswitch between IK and FK in an animation but I can't remember how, and now, I need to do it! Help please, anyone.

I did actually. It works much the same way except that, you have to take into account the curve that Spline IK makes. Thanks again!

HI,

Could someone please elaborate on the process of switching between FK/IK? Problems with IK handle off somewhere in my viewport.........

also how do I set up 'set IK/FK key' in a character set?
