  • Last Updated : 04 Mar, 2021

The mouseReleased() function in p5.js works when mouse button released. The touchEnded() function is used instead of mouseReleased() function when mouseReleased() function is not defined.

Syntax:

mouseReleased(Event)

Below programs illustrate the mouseReleased() function in p5.js:

Example 1: This example uses mouseReleased() function to change the background color.




function setup() {
      
    // Create Canvas
    createCanvas(500, 500);
}
   
let value = 0;
  
function draw() {
      
    // Set the background color
    background(200);
      
    // Fill the color
    fill(value, value-50, value-100);
      
    // Create rectangle
    rect(25, 25, 460, 440);
      
    // Set the filled color
    fill('lightgreen');
      
    // Set the font size
    textSize(15);
      
    // Display result
    text('Keep on Clicking the Mouse Across'
        + ' the page \nto change Canvas Color.',
        windowHeight/10, windowWidth/4);
}
  
function mouseReleased() {
    value = value + 5;
      
    if (value > 255) {

    }

    fill(valueX, 255-valueY, 255-valueX);
