    hi @Zunneh

    I fairly certain you'll need to use a QTimer here to regularly update your label position, while the button is pressed.

    MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) :
        QMainWindow(parent) {
        QTimer *timer = new QTimer(this);
        timer->setIntervall(1000) //1000ms
        connect(timer, &QTimer::timeout, this, &MainWindow:: updatePosition);
        connect(ui-> BTN_Up, &QPushButton::pressed, timer, QOverload<void>::of(&QTimer::start));
    connect(ui-> BTN_Up, &QPushButton::released, timer, &QTimer::stop);
    void MainWindow::updatePosition() {
        if(ui->BTN_Up->isDown()) {
           currentY ++;
       } else {.....}
       ui->label->move(currentX, currentY);

    untested Code, so no guaranties for typos and stuff ;-)

    like this:

    ui-> BTN_Up->setAutoRepeat(true);
    connect(ui->BTN_Up, &QPushButton::pressed, []{
            qDebug() << "Pressed!";

    also use:
    autoRepeatDelay() and setAutoRepeatInterval()
