I have a custom control that contains a datagrid. On some forms I want the user to be able to double click a cell, but sometimes I dont want that even enabled. Is there a way to disable this? I was thinking maybe pass in a flag telling it whether to do the events code or not. What is the best way to do this?
Thanks!

That's probably the easiest way to do it. Another method would be to use AddHandler & RemoveHandler so that the event is never handled.
  Private m_HandleClick As Boolean
  
  Public Property HandleClick() As Boolean
    Get
      Return m_HandleClick
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
      If (m_HandleClick = value) Then Return
      
      m_HandleClick = value
      If (m_HandleClick) Then
        AddHandler grid.Click, AddressOf grid_Click
      Else
        RemoveHandler grid.Click, AddressOf grid_Click
      End If
 
    End Set
  End Property
