    Default "pressed" and "released" signals for buttons

    Hello! Question from a QML newbie here. I'm trying to port a Qt Widgets-based app I wrote a while ago to QML, using the Qt Quick controls. One of the UI features the app heavily relies upon is the ability to tell when the user starts pressing a button, and when they finally release that button. Unfortunately, it appears that Qt Quick's "Button" type only has a "clicked()" signal.

    So far as I have been able to tell, there aren't any alternative button-like controls which provide press and release signals. Only the raw "MouseArea" seems to have this level of detail. So, my question is,

    a) Am I missing a more full-featured button control?

    b) Can I subclass the Button control somehow to add pressed() and released() signals?

    or, what I'm really afraid of:
    c) Do I need to create my own customized MouseArea-based QML button object just to get access to pressed() and released() signals?

    Thanks!

    Use onPressedChanged handler.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    Aha, thank you! I didn't notice that QML properties had implicit signals available.
