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.
