On Double Click

Using the On Double Click Event. Open Record.

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you how to use the On Double Click event to increment a date field by one day. This way you can just double-click on the date field itself to increase its day by one. I'll also show you how you can use this technique to open a customer's record by double-clicking on his ID in the customer list form.

Anderson from Buffalo, New York (a Platinum Member) asks: I watched your On Click Event video. It was awesome. Exactly what I asked for. Is there any way you can do the same thing with a Double Click? This way I don't need the labels which take up precious space.


I'll show you how to cancel a double-click event to prevent the user from clicking twice on a button. You've had it happen before: the user thinks they have to double-click on a button and now they've made the On Click event run twice (deleted two records instead of one, for example). I'll show you how to deal with that. And I'll also show you how to pop up an "Are you sure?" warning message.
