do something while mousedown

Hi Expert,

I looking for a sample code that does something while a button is pushed. I'm thinking about something like this W3schools example :

http://www.w3schools.com/jquery/tryit.asp?filename=tryjquery_event_mup_mdown_ref

But I need a loop to run while the button is pushed. Does someone know where I can find a working sample?

KInd regards,
