 event EventHandler ^ DoubleClick;
public event EventHandler DoubleClick;
public event EventHandler? DoubleClick;
member this.DoubleClick : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event DoubleClick As EventHandler 

Event Type



The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the DoubleClick event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type Button named Button1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the DoubleClick event.

private void Button1_DoubleClick(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the Button.DoubleClick event.");
Private Sub Button1_DoubleClick(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles Button1.DoubleClick

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the Button.DoubleClick event.")

End Sub


By default, the ControlStyles.StandardClick and ControlStyles.StandardDoubleClick style bits are set to false for the Button control, and the DoubleClick event is not raised.
