Hello,

when the user double clicks an item in the ExplorerControl a rename is initiated (see attached screenshot). This is usually expected to happen on a slow double click. On a normal double click users expect the file to be opened. The right click context menu also indicates this behavior as the open action is shown bold (and rename is not). So this is a little bit inconsistent and looks like a bug.

For the WinForms Version I found a workaround here: https://www.telerik.com/forums/few-question-on-explorercontrol#5122863

But the WPF Explorer Control is missing a ItemMouseDoubleClick event, so what is the best way to get the expected behavior?

Best regards, Philipp

I've tested this in the latest WPF Demo app, but I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. This said, can you attach a sample project along with a video showing the exact issue?

The WPF Demo app has excactly the behavior I described (on my computers). Also the attached screenshot is taken from that demo application. If you run the demo application and double click a pdf or jpg file it is opened in your preferred pdf/image viewer?

You are right. Previously I was checking the First Look demo where the file dialog was used. The described behavior is observed in the File Explorer demo. I am afraid that currently this behavior cannot the altered because there is no API that allows access to the rename functionality. However, there is a feature request to introduce this logged in the UI for feedback portal.

No answers yet. Maybe you can help?
