Here is why I ask. I am creating an online training module. The viewer using a password opens up a training manual and reads it. Then at the end he clicks on a link that opens up a test. What I need to happen is that he cannot print a copy or save the training module so that he can refer to it when taking the test. Using a PDf document will allow me to disable the print function, but they can however save a copy and print it out otherwise.
I would think there is a way around this, but haven't come across anything.
Many thanks for your help and input. This is the first time I have used this forum and as a web developer will ceratinly bookmark it for future reference.
very impolite ..works tho ..user has to reboot to get their clipboard etc etc back ..

I used to be involved in online course design for a community college. In some cases we would arrange for local proctors to supervise the students' exams, but in other cases we would say that the tests were open book and students could refer to whatever sources they chose. They're going to make notes one way or another; it's easier just to be realistic about that.
A tight time frame to answer the questions can distinguish between those who truly know their stuff from those who have to look up too many things they're not sure of.
Any more details about "revengineering " on this subject ..wingman only ..sticky ..
PS ..I'm' already ...even in my sometimes "loose" interpretations of the TOS here flying somewhat close to the seagulls ..( note to mods ..I will not be in the slightest offended if this post is not there when I log on again ..) ..subject has come up before ..can be done ..but is impolite ..usually self defeating ( I remember Tedsters advice ...:)...plus for now ..I'd have no idea how to do it to someone using a mac or most flavours of penguin ...so what's really the use?
So they will rely on honesty and integrity on the part of their students. Hopefully they will retain most of what they need before the tests are taken.
You guys have been great and so prompt with your responses. this is my first time on this forum, but for sure it is bookmarked for future use. Sometime I will take some time to browse the subjects and pick up some pointers. Even developing for eight years, you can always learn something new.
