Returns whether a given device button has been released.


device_mouse_check_button_released(device, button);

Argument Description
device The device (from 0 - 4) that is being checked.
button The button of the device that is being checked.

Returns: Boolean


This function returns true (1) or false (0) depending on whether the device that you specify has been released or not. Now, the device refers to the mouse number, which can be from 0 to 4 and this event is triggered when the touch screen of a mobile device is touched, so in this way you can test for up to 5 different screen touches. This function is only triggered once by the actual releasing action, and the standard constants of mb_left and mb_right can be used to check for either button.


if device_mouse_check_button_released(0, mb_left) press=false;

The above code checks to see if the device has been pressed and sets a variable to false if it has.
