If I do not specify help: no;, a question mark is shown in the titlebar of IE, and clicking it adds a "What’s This?” question mark to the mouse cursor, which (of course) lasts for one mouse click.

How do I intercept—and utilize—this specialized event?

in the

onmousedown event in the body check and see if the cursor is help, if it is do what you want


something maybe like

function IsHelp( objTarget )
{
       var blnIsHelp = false; // assume no

       if( document.style.cursor == "help" )
       {
            blnIsHelp = true;
       }

      return blnIsHelp;
}


if its help do what you want
