Kinda yes, kinda no. Most GUIs and GUI recommendations would either
enforce or strongly suggest that the double-click action incorporate
the click action; for instance, click to select, double-click to open.

The series of events usually goes:

Mouse down
Mouse up
Mouse down
Mouse up

They're fired as things happen and in that order. (Some systems insert
another Click just before the Double-click, but that's generally
unhelpful.) Please code your application so that this isn't a problem
to it, because anything else causes untold confusion to the users.
