This event is generated when the user clicks on the receiving object twice.
Netscape indicates which mouse button was pressed in the which property of the event object that is passed as an argument to the event handler function. MSIE makes the value available in the button property of the Event object referenced by the window.event property.
This is not supported by Netscape 4.0 on Unix or Macintosh platforms.
An onDblClick event will also trigger onMouseDown and onMouseUp events. There will also be a possibility of onClick event triggering in some implementations, although a single click and double click should be distinguishable from one another. There is no guarantee that the onDblClick will arrive after the second onMouseUp although that is the logical order.
