Hi,



I have created a simple button containing the action: "on double-click"; now the action works fine on "Run Mode" but it wont work when previewed on IE or Firefox browser.



Regards

    Double-click is not supported by any browser. You can workaround that by placing a transparent button over your button that has two actions:



    On: Click

    Action: Hide

    Target: This object



    On: Hide

    Action: Show

    Target: This object

    Delay: 0.5 sec



    So the "real" button can only be clicked within the 0.5 seconds the transparent button is hidden.

    Thanks Tim,



    Why don't browsers support double-click, and why is the option in Lectora?

    It can be used in Lectora if you publish to .exe or to CD, i.e. the formats that are similar to Lectora preview. I don't know why browsers don't support it, maybe they just don't want to.

    Just to avoid confusion, double click action in Lectora is not supported by any browsers. So when you publish to HTML/SCORM, all double-click actions are ignored.



    However, double-click action as such is supported by JavaScript in all modern browsers and I see no real reason for it to be not implemented in Lectora in future.



    Here's a link that demonstrates various mouse events: http://unixpapa.com/js/testmouse.html, that would be a great feature for Lectora to implement. Or at least warn users during publish that Double-click events are removed.
