use-double-click is a simple React hook for differentiating single and double clicks on the same component.

Check out the demo on Codesandbox

What's wrong with onDoubleClick()?

When you double click on an element, onClick() fires twice alongside your single onDoubleClick() callback. This effect isn't desirable when a single click and a double click have different functions!

useDoubleClick() waits within a latency window after a click for a secondary click, and only after this period either the onSingleClick or onDoubleClick() callback will fire a single time.

Install

yarn add use-double-click

Usage

import { useRef } from 'react';
import useDoubleClick from 'use-double-click';
 
const Button = () => {
  const buttonRef = useRef();
  
  useDoubleClick({
    onSingleClick: e => {
      console.log(e, 'single click');
    },
    onDoubleClick: e => {
      console.log(e, 'double click');
    },
    ref: buttonRef,
    latency: 250
  });
  
  return <button ref={buttonRef}>Click Me</button>
}
