The default double-click action occurs after this event unless the Cancel argument is set to True.

In slide sorter view, the default double-click event for any slide is to change to slide view. In this example, if the active presentation is displayed in slide sorter view, the default action is preempted by the WindowBeforeDoubleClick event. The event procedure changes the view to normal view and then cancels the change to slide view by setting the Cancel argument to True.

Private Sub App_WindowBeforeDoubleClick (ByVal Sel As Selection, ByVal Cancel As Boolean)

    With Application.ActiveWindow

        If .ViewType = ppViewSlideSorter Then

           .ViewType = ppViewNormal

            Cancel = True

        End If

    End With

End Sub
