Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The number of times the mouse button was clicked.

One use of ClickCount is to determine whether a double mouse click has occurred. Some classes expose events for a double-click, such as the MouseDoubleClick event on the Control class. When a double click event is not exposed on a class, a double click can be detected by using the ClickCount property on the event data.

The following example creates a MouseButtonEventHandler which determines if a single, double, or triple click occurred. ClickCount property is used to determine the number of clicks.

Private Sub OnMouseDownClickCount(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs)
    ' Checks the number of clicks.
    If e.ClickCount = 1 Then
        ' Single Click occurred.
        lblClickCount.Content = "Single Click"
    End If
    If e.ClickCount = 2 Then
        ' Double Click occurred.
        lblClickCount.Content = "Double Click"
    End If
    If e.ClickCount >= 3 Then
        ' Triple Click occurred.
        lblClickCount.Content = "Triple Click"
    End If
End Sub
