Create an Activation Link

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

This feature is available only in Hudl Sportscode Pro and Elite. Interested in upgrading?

An activation link automatically activates a button by clicking another linked button. Activation links can be created between any combination of code, label, and toggle buttons.

  1. Open a code window and enter Edit mode.

  2. Open the Inspector window for the button you'd like to activate another button.

    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 code window toolbar.

  3. In the Behaviour tab, click the Activation link drop-down and select the button that you'd like this button to activate.

    Activation links must originate at the button you’re going to activate manually. The arrows must point in the direction of the button you want to activate automatically (as a result of activating the first button).

  4. To create an activation link using a keyboard shortcut, hold down Control + Option and click and drag from the button you'll activate manually to the button you'd like to activate automatically.

  5. After linking the two buttons with an activation link, you'll see a green line with an arrow between the two buttons.
