Want to protect your source code? Using this code will prevent the vast majority of users from right-clicking over a page and choosing "View source", or right-clicking over an image and saving it.
Some times there might be the requirement to disable the pop up menu on click of right button.
Programmers may need to disable right click to prevent user from saving the images on the page or viewing the source of the page.
Though disabling right click is not complete solution to save the data, but it will make task difficult, or may be impossible for the rookies.
I searched on a net for the solution to this problem and i got following solution.
status="Right Click Disabled";
But in this solution if you click the right click it displays the message
“Right click disabled”.
If we want to remove the messegebox then this solution do not work.
I am having another simple solution to achieve the same result and also it does not show the messegebox.
In this method we set the oncontextmenu="return false" in the body part of the page
so body part will look like
<body oncontextmenu="return false">
So whenever user clicks the right mouse button nothing will happen, no message no context menu.
Sometimes there might be requirement to disable the right click on specific control to achive this we have to follow these steps.
1. remove added code in body (i.e. oncontextmenu=”return false”)
2. Add one table and in its row add the control e.g. datagrid control
3. put the oncontextmenu=”return false” in the <tr> for that control
So code will look like this
<tr oncontextmenu="return false">
So by this method context menu on the right click of right mouse click can be disabled.
