anchor double click event handling

I have an anchor in my page which has href property set to a remote url. What i want is when someone double clicks the anchor page should not redirect to designated URL but one javascript function will carry out some operation.

I tried to set the href property "#" in function which is triggered after double click but it did not work the page still redirect to remote URL.

Can this be done

If you want both single and double click to work then wrap the contents using a different element like span, label, li etc.

If you only need the double-click you can do something like,

<a href="#" onClick="return false;" onDblClick="doSomething();return false;">Link</a>
