Create a Button Hotkey

This tutorial is specific to our newest product, Hudl Sportscode. If you’re on Sportscode v11, use these resources instead or upgrade today.


A hotkey is a key­board short­cut used to con­trol a but­ton in the code window.

  1. Enter Edit mode in the code window.

  2. Open the Inspector for the but­ton to which you’d like to add a hotkey.

    You can open the inspec­tor win­dow for a but­ton by dou­ble-click­ing the but­ton or sin­gle-click­ing the but­ton and then click­ing the Inspector icon in the toolbar.

  3. Click the white box next to Hotkey. The box will turn red, indi­cat­ing it’s ready for you to choose a hotkey.

  4. Press the key you’d like to use as a hotkey.

    Hudl Sportscode does not allow the use of ShiftControlOption, or Command as a hotkey. These are mod­i­fi­er keys that can be used in com­bi­na­tion with oth­er keys. For exam­ple, you can use both C and Shift + C as hotkeys for dif­fer­ent buttons.

  5. To delete a hotkey, click the white box next to Hotkey and press Delete twice.
