bug 552 - no double-click event on the iPad

Issue: #552
Affects: Safari on the iPad

Ok, calling this a bug is a big stretch because it was intentionally removed. This is more of a footnote that the dblclick event is not available in Safari on the iPad.

The reason is that the iPad reserves the double "tap" event to zoom in and out of a Web page.

However there's a few additional events that Safari on the iPad doesn't support (with no obvious reason) but we'll tackle in another post. ;-)

Example:

<script type="text/javascript">
<div ondblclick="alert('this will never fire');">DBL Click Me</div>
</script>



Known Workarounds: None.
