A Nice Little FileMaker Pro Tip-n-Trick Showing You a Double-Single Click Trick!

Have you ever wanted to add support for double-clicking in your FileMaker Pro solutions? FileMaker Pro doesn’t currently support that natively, but various workarounds have been created over the years. Unfortunately, none of the techniques I found supports exclusive actions. BOTH the single and double-click actions occur when the user double-clicks. This FileMaker Pro double-single click trick file offers a simple alternative that enables your solutions to perform only one OR the other.

This technique and the FileMaker set-up download have been tested and work with FileMaker Pro versions 12 and 13.

Although untested, this technique is likely to work in any version of FileMaker Pro that supports both the Get(ScriptName) function and fractional seconds in the Pause Script duration.

Click away and enjoy the double-single click FileMaker tutorial!
