Please can anyone explain how to ignore or to stop touch on a touch screen button. There is a moment when I want my touch screen button to be disabled from any input event.
Thank you!!!

2 options come to mind:

Use set_block_signals() to block the button press signal:


Use return in the button’s signal connection:

var PauseButton = false

func _on_TouchButton_pressed():
	if PauseButton = true:
	if PauseButton = false:
		do stuff...

Oh actually, in 3.2 you can set:

get_node("TouchButton").visible = false

and that will disable input as well.
