usual jquery which disables right click event is not working for this scenerio. any help would be appreciated , thanks in advance.
Jquery event

What I have tried:

$("body").on("contextmenu", function () {
return false;
<pre lang="Javascript">

The document is being shown by the PDF viewer installed on the client machine and you have no idea what that viewer is and there is no universal way to disable right click. Even if you could disable right client it is pointless against saving as my viewer might have a "Save" icon without having to right-click. Further more, the fact that it is in my browser means I've already downloaded it, it is on my hard-drive and I can make a copy.
