Double Click [message #536018] Wed, 26 May 2010 16:26 Go to next message

If I add a MouseListener, I seem to be notified of the following events (and in this order):
Down
Up
Down
Double-click
Up.

If I want to ignore the the first up if there is a double coming soon, how would I do that?

Thanks

Hello Thomas,

you have to wait with the Up-Action to see if a DoubleClick-Event occurs.

Something like this:

public static final int MAX_DOUBLECLICK_DELAY = 400;
[...]
widget.addMouseListener(new MouseListener() {

Thread t;
long time=0;

final Runnable r = new Runnable() {
public void run() {
try {
Thread.sleep(MAX_DOUBLECLICK_DELAY + 100);
System.out.println("Up");
} catch (InterruptedException e) {
System.out.println("Up ignored");
}
}
};

public void mouseDoubleClick(MouseEvent arg0) {
if((System.currentTimeMillis()-time)<MAX_DOUBLECLICK_DELAY)
t.interrupt();
System.out.println("Double");
}

public void mouseDown(MouseEvent arg0) {
System.out.println("Down");
}

public void mouseUp(MouseEvent arg0) {
time=System.currentTimeMillis();
t=new Thread(r);
t.start();
}

});

Best regards,
Ludger

If the 2nd MouseUp/Down mouse events are to be controlled, then it would
be very easy to track them through event.count field. However, since the
first MouseUp event has to be controlled, then a mechanism similar to
the one posted above should suffice. However, I would suggest minor
changes for the mechanism to act correctly in all scenarios.

> public void mouseDoubleClick(MouseEvent arg0) {
> if((System.currentTimeMillis()-time)<MAX_DOUBLECLICK_DELAY)
> public void mouseUp(MouseEvent arg0) {
> time=System.currentTimeMillis();

The 'time' variable has to be calculated against the event.time field,
which indicates the exact time when the mouse event has happened.
Considering the system time might draw to inaccuracy due to the system
thread scheduling algorithm (when the thread is delayed for the
execution). So, all the time calculations should be dealt with
event.time fields only.

Thanks very much to both of you for the help.

It seems to me as if I still need the event.count in the upEvent. I'm trying to process the Up Event if there's no double-click, and just the double-click otherwise. Consider the enclosed code. It's exactly like yours except that I made an abstract class out of it and create it from my main.

I stored the _upEvent so I could give it to my "processSingleClick."

If I don't check for event.count in the moueUp, I get:
processDouble
processSingle.

But anyway, this is a lot cleaner and better than what I had.

Thanks again.
