Hence, jquery mobile is slow and unresponsive when trying to expand a collapsible list using Click. I want to handle the double click event and generate an alert box on double click. Which method/ event should I use for this purpose?When an element is double clicked, this event occurs. I have the following jquery event handling functionI ended up building a custom double click function that will work on both mobile and desktop There you will see 5 different ways of click event binding in jQuery Mobile: 2 click event are bound in HEAD, before page is initialized into the DOM.The pageinit event isnt double bubbling so it doesnt require manual stopping. pageinit should only fire once per page but it fires again for each dynamically jQuery Mobile.
