double click difficulties

I am unable to capture the double click event on a button that I am using. The buttons do not support double click events. There are two double click problems I am encountering,

 1) If a user double clicks the button and the button processes the button_click code twice and

 2) When the user double clicks, the first click processes the code which opens a new form, and now the second click activates an event on the second form...  

To solve the first problem, you could disable the button when entering the click method, then re-enable it when it is completed, however there are many buttons and many forms, so I am looking for a less tedious solution.

For the second problem,you almost need some sort of delay before opening the next window, because the next window is opened before the user can even perform the second click.

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated

This is not answer, just general design considerations.
Looking at most Windows programs we can see that double-click action is always continuation of click action. For example, in Windows Explorer, click selects file, and double-click opens it. In text editor click sets cursor, double-click selects word under cursor. There is no conflict between click and double-click action because two requirements are met:
1) Double-cluick action is always more "strong" than click action.
2) Double-click action always continues click action and doesn't need to cancel anything which is done in click action.

Looking at your requirements, I see that double-click button handler conflicts with click handler which looks more "strong". Possibly UI design should be changed.

If you need to implement this approach in any case, I think it is necessary to wtite custom button control.
