How to support push button like functionality?

I want to build a garage door opener using a Click relay board.

From the RapidIot module I want to use a side push button to control the relay.

I thought I could get a trigger when the button was pressed and could close the relay and another trigger when the user button was released which would re-open the relay.

But the user buttons don't support the released trigger!

I also wonder about an interface from a phone or web app.  Is there a user interface component which could simulate the Close / Open functionality of a good old fashioned push button?

Sorry I wasn't clear.  I was referring to the push buttons not the touch controller buttons.

However I've delved into the code enough to see that I can extend the interface to include "button released" triggers.

Seems like a bit of work spanning several layers of embedded code.  But I can see its doable.

Hi Larry, 

I am not sure if I solved your issue.

Please let me know if you have more questions.

After more research I've found that the Application API does support both "pressed" and "released" triggers.

Additionally the basic "button" element also supports a "released" trigger.

I assumed that the RapidIoT "User Buttons" would have been built upon the basic "Button" element and I was wrong!

Is there a good reason the "User Buttons" element does not provide released triggers?

Is there a way to create an fully compatible "User Buttons" element alternative that does support the released triggers?

Is there a concept of a combined element that contains two or more basic elements?  User Buttons = 4 buttons

Hi Larry,

You could add that specific condition in the code editor, or in the MCUxpresso downloading the complete project. Implement a software timer that gets the button value and if it changes again you could create an event.

Is there a concept of a combined element that contains two or more basic elements?  User Buttons = 4 buttons.

The X9500 Touch Controls the 4 buttons, did you see the triggers section in the rapid IoT Studio
