A deac­ti­va­tion link is used to auto­mat­i­cal­ly deac­ti­vate a but­ton after acti­vat­ing anoth­er linked but­ton. Deactivation links can be cre­at­ed between any com­bi­na­tion of code, label, and tog­gle buttons.

  1. Enter Edit mode in the code window.

  2. Open the inspec­tor for the but­ton that you’d like to have deac­ti­vate anoth­er button.

    Open the Inspector win­dow for any but­ton by dou­ble-click­ing the but­ton or sin­gle-click­ing the but­ton and click­ing the Inspector icon in the code win­dow toolbar.

  3. In the Behaviour tab, click the Deactivation link drop-down and select the but­ton that you’d like this but­ton to deactivate.

    Deactivation links must be cre­at­ed from the but­ton that you’ll acti­vate, and point to the but­ton that you’d like it to auto­mat­i­cal­ly deactivate.

  4. Keyboard short­cut: hold Shift + Control and click and drag from the but­ton that you’ll acti­vate, and point to the but­ton that you’d like it to deac­ti­vate automatically.

  5. After link­ing the two but­tons with a deac­ti­va­tion link, you’ll see a red line with an arrow between the two buttons.
