NotifyIcon.DoubleClick Event

Occurs when the user double-clicks the icon in the notification area of the taskbar.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public event EventHandler DoubleClick
/** @event */
public void add_DoubleClick (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_DoubleClick (EventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates using the NotifyIcon class to display an icon for an application in the notification area. The example demonstrates setting the Icon, ContextMenu, Text, and Visible properties and handling the DoubleClick event. A ContextMenu with an Exit item on it is assigned to the NotifyIcon.ContextMenu property, which allows the user to close the application. When the DoubleClick event occurs, the application form is activated by calling the Form.Activate method.
