Disable "print" on context menu in IE

Right, as the topic says, I am fed up with the "Print" option being so close to the "Refresh" option...  I play an online game, where you have to refresh quite a bit (just the individual frames), and I am sick of hitting "Print" by mistake..hehehe

But where do I start?  

Is this possible?  

I know I can turn the context menu off with the registry, but that is too much (as I need the context->refresh)

Is it possible to get a handle to the menu?

I  have started out at 50 points, incase the answer is a resounding "No this isn't possible", but obviously for a working example, I will go up much higher ;-)

Thanks!  Hope someone can help!!

Tim.

you could do your own ie using twebbrowser and disable the webbrowsers popmenu and add you own with just refresh etc what you need for this game.

i havent tested this with the refresh before so cant say for sure if it refreshes the whole page or not (which i gather you dont want)what are you wanting to refresh ?is it just one frame?


procedure TForm1.MessageLoop(var Msg: TMsg; var Handled: Boolean);
var
 mouse:Tpoint;
begin
if msg.hwnd = webbrowser1.Handle then
  begin
   if (Msg.Message = WM_RBUTTONDOWN) or (Msg.Message = WM_RBUTTONUP)
   then begin
    handled:=True;
     getcursorpos(Mouse);
    popupmenu1.popup(Mouse.x,Mouse.y);
   end
  else Handled := False; //not rbutton
 end
else
Handled := false; //not webbrowser msg
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
Application.OnMessage := MessageLoop;
end;

procedure TForm1.refresh1Click(Sender: TObject);
var vinput : olevariant;
begin
vinput := 0;
webbrowser1.Refresh2(vinput);
end;

I think that refreshes the whole page...

Also, I want other people to be able to use my hook thing, and I don't want them to have to download my "reduced capability" browser...  More run my small app to hook IE and disable Print...

Hmmm...I guess this is really hard...
