GlobalEventHandlers.ondblclick

The ondblclick property of the GlobalEventHandlers mixin is an EventHandler that processes dblclick events on the given element.

The dblclick event is raised when the user double clicks an element. It fires after two click events.

Syntax

target.ondblclick = functionRef;

Value

functionRef is a function name or a function expression. The function receives a MouseEvent object as its sole argument. Within the function, this will be the element upon which the event was triggered.

Only one ondblclick handler can be assigned to an object at a time. You may prefer to use the EventTarget.addEventListener() method instead, since it's more flexible.

Example

This example logs the position of double clicks.

HTML

<p>Double click anywhere in this example.</p>
<p id="log"></p>

JavaScript

let log = document.getElementById('log');

document.ondblclick = logDoubleClick;

function logDoubleClick(e) {
  log.textContent = `Position: (${e.clientX}, ${e.clientY})`;
}
