I am trying to learn action scripting as best as I can. When going through the examples in the Introduction to
Action Scripting, pages 158-160.

When you are adding this deactivation button, following the steps, when you get to the end of the example the button works, but shouldn't the date be removed?

The example before that had you deactivate the button, but on the next example, to NOT deactivate the customer, should you not click on the button NO deactivation, the button does it thing, but then the date should be removed from the deactivation status?
