WorksheetBase.BeforeDoubleClick Event


Occurs when the worksheet is double-clicked, before the default double-click action.

Namespace:   Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.v4.0.Utilities.dll)

public event DocEvents_BeforeDoubleClickEventHandler BeforeDoubleClick

This event does not occur when the user double-clicks the border of a cell.

The following code example demonstrates a handler for the BeforeDoubleClick event that cancels the double-click action on the current worksheet. The event handler informs the user that double-clicking is not allowed for the worksheet, and then sets the Cancel parameter of the DocEvents_BeforeDoubleClickEventHandler event handler to true so that Microsoft Office Excel cancels the double-click action.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void WorksheetBeforeDoubleClick()
    this.BeforeDoubleClick += 
        new Excel.DocEvents_BeforeDoubleClickEventHandler(

void Worksheet1_BeforeDoubleClick(Excel.Range Target, 
    ref bool Cancel)
    MessageBox.Show("Double-clicking in this sheet" +
        " is not allowed.");
    Cancel = true;
