ListView - long tap versus short tap

Is there an easy way to differentiate between a short tap and a long tap on a ListView.   I have slots for both activationChanged and triggered, but they are both get called no matter how short or long the tap is.  Should I add my own timer and do the determination myself of does the toolkit offer a more convient way to do this.


The idea behind a short tap and long tap  is that items selected with a short tap enable a delete button, and a long tap on an item brings up an editor for the list item long tapped


Is there a way to offer highlighting of item that are selected. The default style just draws a blue box around the item slected but it is not very visible.


I am doing this in C++


Any ideas apprected
