The ondblclick event is associated with the double click of a mouse on a selected HTML element. Whenever you double click the element, the script code of the ondblclick is executed. This script can also call functions or subroutines which contain code that you want to run when the double click occurs.

The similar onclick event is associated with the single click of a mouse.
