Create an Activation Link

This tutorial is specific to Sportscode v11. Have Hudl Sportscode, our newest product? Use these resources.

This feature is available only in 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. Enter Edit mode in the code window.

  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 and 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.

    The automatically activated button will still need to be deactivated manually unless the button has lag time applied.

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