Container {
  background: Color.create("#00ff00")
  onTouch: {
    if (event.isDown()) {
      // do something

 Untested, but should work.

Re: Coloured square

You will probably need to add a preferredWidth and preferredHeight to that container or I suspect it will render with no size.

And of course, like my post if you found it helpful or informative!
