I am trying to setup a custom switch panel with two DPDT Rocker Momentary Switches. (
One placed horizontally and other placed vertically.

Action on Left click of horizontally placed switch is AS1000_MFD_JOYSTICK_LEFT
Action on Right click of horizontally placed switch is AS1000_MFD_JOYSTICK_RIGHT
Action on Up click of vertically placed switch is AS1000_MFD_JOYSTICK_UP
Action on DOWN click of vertically placed switch is AS1000_MFD_JOYSTICK_DOWN

It works. But the problem is,
I have to keep pressing and releasing (so many times) to move the map LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN.
I was hoping if there is a way I can set this up in such a way that, as Long as I press and hold the button the set action continue running. For eg, if I press and hold left button, I want map to be moved left continuously.

Is that doable?

Thank you

Thank you Jaime for helping.
Here is an article written by him,

For my specific use case, below resolved the issue.

Short Long Press - Input with Custom input on press,
1 (>L:myBtn,bool) (E:SIMULATION TIME,second) 0.25 + d (>L:myTshort) (>L:myTlong)

Short Long Press - input with Custom input on release,
(E:SIMULATION TIME,second) (L:myTshort) < if{ (>H:AS1000_MFD_JOYSTICK_UP) }
0 (>L:myBtn) 0 (>L:myTshort) 0 (>L:myTlong)

Long Press - Output - Sim Connect Variable and Variable value as,
(L:myBtn) (E:SIMULATION TIME,second) (L:myTlong) > and if{ (L:myTlong) 0.05 + (>L:myTlong) (>H:AS1000_MFD_JOYSTICK_UP) }
