OnContextmenu EventHandler

This event handler used to prevent context menus from displaying
The default context menu always displays when you right click on the webpage.
If you want to disable/Hide the menu that appears by right clicking the browser, this event handler is the best thing to use.

Here is the code :

In the body tag of the HTML page make sure that oncontextmenu returns false.
<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0" bottommargin="0" oncontextmenu = "return false" >

If you want the context menu to display only if you right click and also holding control key.This might be useful for devloping dubugging environments.

Here is the Code

Oncontectmenu = “return event.ctrlKey”

Good Luck!!

That would be Internet Explorer specific. However, a quick DHTML snippet, a few of them are available in should address Netscape and FireFox and across Windows/MAC and other platforms as well.
