Is there a way to prevent a user from spawning a new window. I want to hide the URL and (it is - until someone does a Ctrl-N).   This is just one approach I'm looking at -- it would be the easiest if it works, the others require more coding and changes but are better long term.  I was just looking for a solution to get my by for a while with a client.

Thanks.

Hi Bl248,

Yes there is.

Here is a working example.

<script language="javascript">
      function keyPress() {
            if (event.ctrlKey && event.keyCode == 78) {
                  event.keyCode = 0;
                  event.returnValue = false;
                  return false;
            }
      }
</script>

<body onkeydown="keyPress();">

Regards
Plucka
