Definition and Usage

The dblclick event occurs when an element is double-clicked.

The dblclick() method triggers the dblclick event, or attaches a function to run when a dblclick event occurs.

Tip: The dblclick event also generates a click event. This can cause problems if both events are applied to the same element.


Trigger the dblclick event for the selected elements:

$(selector).dblclick() Try it

Attach a function to the dblclick event:

$(selector).dblclick(function) Try it

Parameter Description
function Optional. Specifies the function to run when the dblclick event occurs
