SetDoubleClickTime sets the maximum amount of time allowed between successive mouse clicks for Windows to determine it as a double click. This function alters how Windows interprets a double click, so of course all applications as well as Windows itself will be affected. Be careful using this function, since the user usually sets the double click speed via Windows's Control Panel, so he/she may not expect a change in the double click speed. The function returns 1 if successful, or 0 if an error occured.
For further information on Windows API functions such as these, and how to use these API's in your
C# and VB.NET applications, please refer to the book 'Network programming in .NET' (Buy at Amazon UK)
