Holding down finger (touch start and holding)

Is there any way to find out if the person is holding down the button?

There is touchstart & touchmove but I cant find the right combo to do this.

EXP: while holding down the button a action will happen (realtime)?

  • Start a timer when the touchstart event triggers, and if touchend does not appear in X time ( you decide how much ) start your action.

    setTimeout is a little buggy so you might need to use this


    to solve this issue.

  • Is there no better answer? I would think with all the swipe,click, 2 finger tap, At least 1 person would have asked what if they hold it down! I dont know if its just me Ill shut up I guess
