Double Clicks received twice

In one of my dialogs I have a string grid for which I set
the ControlStyle to include [csClickEvents] (I do this in the
FormShow event handler of the dialog). This makes it possible to catch the OnClick event, which I use to perform certain actions. I catch the DoubleClick events as well ([csDoubleClicks] is in the ControlStyle by default) to toggle a boolean variable.

The problem is that for every double click I give in the string grid, the pertaining event handler is called twice. This is pretty annoying, since it toggles my boolean twice.
When I don't include the csClickEvents in the ControlStyle, there is only one call to the event handler, as expected. I need the single clicks as well, so this no solution for me.

Any ideas ?

I'm probably stupid (I'm swedish), but I don't understand
the question; why do you have to add the events when they're
already there? There should be no problem doing what you want
in the existing event handlers!?. %-)

I dropped a stringgrid on a form, created an OnClick and an OnDblClick event handler, and it works as expected...

Why do you modify ControlStyle?

Regards,

Erik.

The OnClick etc. work fine, but not for fixed columns. You can make your OnClick event handler getting called for a Click on a fixed column by adding csClickEvents to the control style as I described, with the described behaviour.

In the mean time I managed to solve the problem myself by
handling the MouseDown (without csClickEvents in the control style). I had tried this before, to no avail. I must have done something wrong then.

Sorry for bothering you with a non-question!

Don't worry about bothering us!
We (I) do this for the fun of it.
I was stupid not to understand the problem since I came
across the same problem two years ago or so.
Next time make sure that the question is complete, and you will
get a complete answer.

Okay, the problem is because of the implementation of TCustomGrid.  It never listen to click event directly as you know and generate click event by explictly calling the Click method in some situation like clicking on the non-fixed cell.

If you force the grid to listen to click event, then you are expected to get 2 events.

The only work around is to build a subclass of TStringGrid and override the MouseDown method. Simply copy the code in TCustomGrid and move the line "Click;" to the end of the method.  

So you will receive click event no matter where you click on the grid :>
