JavaScript double click event: Action on element

JavaScript Event Handling: Exercise-10 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function that listens for a double click on an element and performs a specific action.

Sample Solution:

HTML and JavaScript Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <button id="myButton">Double click me!</button>
    const myButton = document.getElementById('myButton');
    myButton.addEventListener('dblclick', () => {
      console.log('A double click has been performed!');
      // Perform desired actions here

Sample Output:

JavaScript double click event: Action on element.
JavaScript double click event: Action on element.

Note: Executed on JS Bin


In the above exercise,

  • First, we define a button element with the id "myButton". The JavaScript code retrieves this button element using document.getElementById('myButton') and assigns it to the myButton variable.
  • Next we attach an event listener to the button using the addEventListener method. We specify the event type as "dblclick" to detect double clicks on the button.
  • Inside the event listener function, we log a message to the console indicating that the double click action was performed. You can replace the console.log statement with your desired action.
