    Default How to get mouse events(mouse release) on a pushbutton

    How can i get mouse press & mouse release events on a qpush button.
    I can get mouse press event of a button by writing its slot. How can i get the mouse release event?? pls help



    My purpose is to provide a new cursor image to the cursor when a button is clicked.
    I have done it using its slot and restored back the default icon using a timer.


    the problem is when i press the mouse button for a long time without release the image will restore on the time out of timer.

    I tryed mouse press & mouse release event but it doesnot works for the pushbuttons but works on frames.

    QAbstractButton:ressed() and QAbstractButton::release() signals.
    Qt Code:
    1. connect(ui->pushButton, SIGNAL(pressed()), this, SLOT(pressed()));
    2. connect(ui->pushButton, SIGNAL(released()), this, SLOT(released()));
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    have slots ...
    Qt Code:
    1. void MainWindow::pressed(){
    2. qDebug()<<"hi pressed";
    3. }
    4.  
    5. void MainWindow::released(){
    6. qDebug()<<"hi released";
    7. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Did you try to use an event filter for those purposes?
