Disabling the Print menu option

We want to prevent the user from printing a web page when they are viewing it. Through Javascript, we have managed to hide the menubar, but they can still issue the Print command.

Is there a way to write a Java applet or application to disable the Print menu option in the various browsers? We don't need a totally foolproof solution - we just need to be thwart the efforts of the casual web surfer.

Thanks,

- Alex -

No.
You cannot do this in Java.
Java applets cannot have affect and also should not have affect on browser. If you could do that, then you could do also other stuff and there would be more expoits and abuses.
So the answer is no.
If I am ight, you want to disable normal surfer, that he prints documents from your site. If it so, why put you this stuff on the web. ??
There must be other solution for this problem.
