Description#

Get the number of mouse clicks. This will be 1 for a single mouse click and 2 for a double click. The value can be much higher if the user clicks fast enough.

This method also responds to the mouse wheel. It will be 1 when the mouse wheel is rotating down and -1 when the mouse wheel is rotating up.

Underlying Processing method: MouseEvent.getCount
