Tracking on

useMousePressed

Reactive mouse pressing state. Triggered by mousedown touchstart on target element and released by mouseup mouseleave touchend touchcancel on window.

Basic Usage

import { useMousePressed } from '@vueuse/core'

const { pressed } = useMousePressed()

Touching is enabled by default. To make it only detects mouse changes, set touch to false

const { pressed } = useMousePressed({ touch: false })

To only capture mousedown and touchstart on specific element, you can specify target by passing a ref of the element.
















 
 
 
 
 




<template>
  <div ref="el">
    Only clicking on this element will trigger the update.
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import { ref } from 'vue'
import { useMousePressed } from '@vueuse/core'

export default {
  setup() {
    const el = ref(null)

    const { pressed } = useMousePressed({ target: el })

    return {
      el,
      pressed,
    }
  }
})
</script>
