Create a Deactivation Link

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

A deactivation link is used to automatically deactivate another 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 window for the button that you’d like to 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 manually, and point to the button that you’d like it to deactivate automatically.

  4. To create a deactivation link using a keyboard shortcut, hold ShiftControl and click and drag from the button you’ll activate manually to the button you want to deactivate automatically.

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