How to turn on a led for the time that a button is pressed down?

    Mar 06 2012 | 8:29 am
    I have a question about buttons. Is it possible to create a button that sends '1' for the time that you click on it with your mouse, and sends '0' when you release your mouse button? I want to turn on a led for the whole time that a button is pressed down.
    Now I've done this with a toggle, but it doesn't give exactly the right effect. Since you need to click twice to turn it on and off.
    Thanks a lot!

      There's probably (got to be!) something simpler, and the toggle engages with mouse clicking elsewhere on the window, but it does work..

      I had the same problem and made my own using the ubutton and an Int.

      in M4L you can set bang transition of Button to both sides, 0 to 1 and 1 to 0

      But the Live.button is always round, no?

      yes, but you can overlay a panel if roundness is a issue.
