print screen, alt, crtl, shift keys diabling
Disable the keys through javascript

Does any one knows about disabling the keyboard keys "Print screen, alt, Shift, crtl, f11" through javascript?

Do you want to disable the whole keyboard or just these specific keys?

you could use the onKeyPress event to have an alert box coming up every time the keyboard is used.

However I wouldn't recommand disabling any of the keyboard capabilities as people use it to browse (and the onKeyPress event isn't supported by the older browser)

Hi Chetspune and welcome to Webmaster World

I don't know the answer, but if is possible, then I'd consider that a serious security bug in the browser ;-)
