Using jQuery, doubleclick event on a button doesn't work. Is that really the way it is?

I'm playing around with the sample below.

Note the "Grow Right" button, which makes the <div> expand to the right in width. I wanted to add a double-click event handler to that button to make it shrink back to its original size. Then I realized the double-click wasn't working. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

The jquery doubleclick keyword is abbreviated... just use ".dblclick" instead of ".doubleclick".

$("#right").dblclick(function() {
    alert("You double-clicked me!");
    $("#theDiv").animate({ width: "250px" }, 1000);
});
