Usage and demos

It's quite simple and intuitive, just pass function as other events:

events: {
                        dblclick: function () {
                            $('#report').html('dbclick on xAxis label');
                        },
                        click: function () {
                            $('#report').html('click on xAxis label');
                        },
                        contextmenu: function () {
                            $('#report').html('context menu on xAxis label');
                        }
}
