All,

Is there any way with XForms to catch double clicks? The DOM 2 events 
spec [1] says:

"The activate event occurs when an element is activated, for instance, 
thru a mouse click or a keypress. A numerical argument is provided to 
give an indication of the type of activation that occurs: 1 for a simple 
activation (e.g. a simple click or Enter), 2 for hyperactivation (for 
instance a double click or Shift Enter)."

So there appears to be a way to get this information, but it is not 
available to XForms without a mechanism such as the event() function 
proposed for XForms 1.1. Am I right? Do implementations support this?

I think that double clicks are not the best user interface solution with 
HTML, but some users seem to want to be able to do this, and of course 
there are other host languages where double clicks may be more customary.
