onDblClick( )

Adds an event handler that runs when the element is double-clicked.

Description

An element receives a dblClick event when a user double-clicks on the element and releases.

When a user double-clicks an element, two click events are fired before a doubleClick event is also fired.

Deprecation note: The $w parameter of event handlers is being deprecated. To get a scoped selector for working with elements in repeater items, use the $w.at() function and pass it the context property of the event parameter: $item = $w.at(event.context). To learn more, see here.
