I have an attachment field in my form.  I would like for the user to be able to double click it and open in its default program (ex. - Word doc opens in Word, image opens in default photo viewer, etc.).  This can be accomplished by double clicking > the Manage Attachment dialog appears > select attachment > Open.  I want the series of clicks to be limited to double click > Open.  Any ideas on how to accomplish this?
