odd behaviour double click label v button


This is an odd one. I've been struggling to get "double click" to work well
for my controls.

The same event handler works perfectly for buttons, but not for labels.

Can anyone tell me why not?

Below is an working VB.Net example to illustrate what I mean.

Public Class Form1

Inherits System.Windows. Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "

Public Sub New()


'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.

InitializeCompo nent()

'Add any initialization after the InitializeCompo nent() call

End Sub

'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.

Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)

If disposing Then

If Not (components Is Nothing) Then

components.Disp ose()

End If

End If

MyBase.Dispose( disposing)

End Sub

The double click work for almost every control different. There is a special
page on MSDN for that, I have not a link direct to it, and because in this
case I don't know the search string can you maybe look for it yourself.

Here is the link:


But I wonder why the OP is not just subscribing to the DoubleClick
event of the label?

thanks Cor and Chris.

That table does pose more questions than answers.

My understanding was that there was no such thing as a "doubleclic k" event
for either a label or a button, hence the need to check programatically for
the elapsed time between two consecutive clicks.
Now we find the CLR interprets the exact same code differently depending on
the nature of the sender?

IMHO that is an example of managed code removing the rights of the

I would love to know the reasoning behind this.
