comment Verb used with “threshold”
Also exactly like a border, when the value goes from 99 to 101 it crosses the threshold, but when it goes from 101 to 99 it crosses the threshold as well.

I think it's worth mentioning that this is probably a synecdoche in this context.

comment Can we use “Do your Button” for “Close your button”?
I think (speaking as an American) that "Do your button up" would be an unlikely thing for a speaker of General American English to say.
