Hi Kang Jin,

You can create a subclass of vtkInteractorStyle and reimplement the 
mouse events in the following way (I have not tried this, but it should 

    * create an int member variable called mouseMoves in the interactor
      and initialize it to 0
    * create another int variable called leftClicks and initialize it to
      0 as well
    * in OnLeftButtonDown(),  if mouseMoves > 0, set mouseMoves = 0
    * in OnMouseMove(), mouseMoves++;
    * in OnLeftButtonUp(), if mouseMoves == 0, increment leftClicks
    * then in the same method, check if leftClicks == 2 (double click),
      if so, you have captured a double click

You may want to allow more than 0 mouse moves (like 5 or so) because 
people tend to move the mouse slightly as they double click. You may 
also want to create your own event (LeftDoubleClickEvent) and invoke it 
at the appropriate time.
