### Suggestion: Doubleclick callback

Hi there

it would be cool to have a love.mouse.doubleclick funtion, like the other love.mouse.(mousemoved / mousepressed / mousereleased) callback functions.

I have made the funciton myself, but it would be cool to have it build in love directly

Hello!

In the next version of LÖVE love.mousepressed and love.mousereleased have a click count argument, which I believe is the number of clicks in quick succession based on the system's double-click speed setting.

Code: Select all

function love.mousepressed(x, y, button, isTouch, clickCount)
if clickCount == 2 then
print('Double click!')
end
end

(You can see the current changelog of the next version of LÖVE here, and you can try the nightly build of the next version for Window or Linux.)

Question when i double click will i get two events or one event?
First will fire single click events although only double click was desired
Second slows down none double clicks

I'd also like this feature to be toggle-able, like the key repeat feature; or at least have it behave in a way that i don't need to bend backwards to work around it.
