Cancel a Double Click Event

kiranboi asked
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have a FarPoint Spread grid on my form and I want it to ignore a double click from a mouse. Unfortunately if I goto the DblClick event there is no Cancel within the event args.
Is there another easy way round this?

check if there is any CELLdoubleclick or row double click event...you can disable that...
Try this
Private Sub FpSpread1_CellDoubleClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellClickEventArgs) Handles FpSpread1.CellDoubleClick
If e.ColumnHeader = True Then
e.Cancel = True
End If
End Sub
Please modify according to your needs.


there is no CellDoubleClick event. There is a MouseDoubleClick event but, again, it has no e.Cancel property
