Bug Description

If you double-click on an object in pcbnew/GAL and a disambiguation menu appears, choosing the object in the menu only selects it, rather than executing the double-click action on it.

Application: kicad
Version: (2015-09-14 BZR 6200, Git e27fa50)-product debug build
wxWidgets: Version 3.0.2 (debug,wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1002,GCC 4.2.1,wx containers,compatible with 2.8)
Platform: Linux 4.1.6-1-ARCH x86_64, 64 bit, Little endian, wxGTK

This disambiguation menu you are talking about, is this the Clarify selection context menu?

I cannot even double click an item, if there is more than one item in the same spot. The first click invokes disambiguation menu, that is immediately disposed with the second click, which is received by the context menu.

The problem with double click event is that single click event arrives first, and afterwards there is a double click event, as it is impossible to foresee if the first click is just a part of double click. Any ideas how to solve it?

Is this still relevant? There have been some fixes regarding this recently from Seth as far as I understand it.

Yes. My fix applied only to the legacy canvas. I'm looking into a similar method for GAL. I'll assign this one to me for now.

From the duplicate, while creating this delay, we need to look at configuring the delay time and not using the delay if there is no disambiguation required (or propagate the cross-probe based on the top stack until the delay)

summary: - pcbnew: cannot double-click through disambiguation menu
+ GAL: cannot double-click through disambiguation menu

We've been living with this one for a while and the previous fix caused more bug reports. Probably best to come up with a full solution in 6
