Textbutton feature request

Hi Cycling,

Thanks and congratulations for the new Max!

The Textbutton is very usefull, but in order to replace the
combination of ubutton and fpic, it would be nice if we had the
possibility to detect both the Mouse Down and the Mouse Up. There is a
lot of case where only Mouse Down or only Mouse Up is not enough.

Thanks.
Philippe OLLIVIER.

This is not going to happen unless you have a good strategy to
implement it without requiring to add any new outlet, or breaking any
existing patch. The question came during the beta testing, but it
would have cause too much complexity to use the object. You can easily
accomplish that with ubutton for all sort of click detections, so
that’s the way to go.
