The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Raises the DoubleClick event.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

protected virtual void OnDoubleClick(
	EventArgs e


Type: System.EventArgs

An EventArgs that contains the event data.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

The OnDoubleClick method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding OnDoubleClick in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnDoubleClick method so that registered delegates receive the event.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the OnDoubleClick method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolStripItem class.

// The method defines the behavior of the DoubleClick 
// event. It shows a MessageBox with the item's text.
protected override void OnDoubleClick(EventArgs e)

    string msg = String.Format("Item: {0}", this.Text);
