If you're going to wait, I would suggest not using a hard-coded constant but instead use the 'doubleClickInterval' global property (as in "wait the doubleClickInterval milliseconds"), as it gets the time based on the user's OS settings for double-click speed.

If it's possible to separate these two into two separate buttons that would be best, as it's usually a bit confusing to the end user; but that said, waiting the doubleClickInterval should do it…
