    I'm on 1.4.4/1.5 and using the PlayerInput workflow with SendMessages - I'm trying to trigger an action when a button is released.
    What is the most straightforward way to do this?
    Thanks in advance!

    Put Press interaction on the button binding, set its behavior to "ReleaseOnly".

    Thanks, it works! "Press" interaction feels like a pretty confusing naming convention to find the Release behaviour under.
    For Unity peeps, maybe that info could be added to the How Do I ... section of the documentation?

    You also can subscribe to the "cancelled" event that will be triggered when the button is released.
