In a A2010 datababase the user click on a subform which lists some products, to open up a detail Window of the product informations. Some users have a habit of double clicking on the subform list, and then the second click is "carried over" to the product detail form - and there it sometimes happens to be right over my "go back" button.. - how can I drop/ignore that second click :)?

That would not be a Double Click, but rather two single clicks. A DoubleClick on the Form/Subform would launch whatever code is in the DoubleClick event, and not the code in the Click event.

User training would be in order, it would seem, or perhaps a confirmation box in the "go back" button.

In the DoubleClick event, put in this code line:

    Cancel = True

Cancel = True does unfortunately not help :) It's probably detected as two double clicks as Scott mentions

OK, then you can run this code:

Have a private variable in the main form Declaration section:

    Private SubFormCalled As Boolean

In the OnActivate of the main form:

    SubFormCalled = False

In the OnClick event:

    If  SubFormCalled = False Then
        ' Your current open subform code.
        SubFormCalled = True
    End If

If you mean that it should be put in the main forms subform where the click is done (and not in the called detail form) then I've tried that now, and it doesn't Work - I can't see the logic why it should Work either :) - because it would only prevent the detail form from being opened twice - which is not the case :)

It will prevent the doubleclick from creating the second click.

But Scott is, of course, right: If the user clicks twice slowly and the subform opens in between, there is nothing you can do other than moving the buttons around so they don't hit the back button with the second click.

Perhaps you can disable the backbutton by default. Then enable it from the Timer event on the subform with a delay of, say, 500 ms.

yes, I was thinking about the timer event - will try it now. The weird thing is that it's what I feel is a normal double click - not a slow one :)
