How to disable the right mouse button

Last updated 5-31-03

Afraid that someone's going to steal your site? Well ... did you know you can disable their right mouse-button? This is supposed to make it harder to copy things (pictures, especially). It will probably really annoy your visitors.

Keep in mind ... disabling someone's computer could be considered an insult as it implies that your visitors are thieves. It wouldn't really deter the real culprits, anyway, as they can still hi-light and copy from the menu bar.

I'm not sure where this particular javascript comes from as it was e-mailed to me. Enjoy!


Try to determine the file-size of this picture by "right-clicking" it!

Source code ... add after first Body tag

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
var message="Dooh!! The right-click has been disabled on this page!";
function click(e) {
if (document.all) {
if (event.button==2||event.button==3) {
return false;
if (document.layers) {
if (e.which == 3) {
return false;
if (document.layers) {
// -->
