Auto Stop Loading Script ?

I need a script that if user reached it ( without clicking or pressing ), it will stop loading the page.
Is it avaiable ? Can you explain for me ?

If you want to prevent user from typing in http://url/myscrip.js, then I doubt it's possible (you can obfuscate the code to stop the casual observer though)
But if you want to prevent user from accessing an HTML page that has your javascript code embedded in it, try this:

Use a form with onclick events for buttons & links. When form is submitted, form field data gets inserted into the url. e.g. "http://www.google.com/search?q=javascript"
So if user just types in the base url, your script can check the url & so will know that the page was not reached using a particular button or link.

Won't stop them from typing in the url with the proper input after the '?', but it makes it less convenient for them. But you can set a value that MUST exist in the url, e.g. a really long complex value that no user would want to type out, and set it as a hidden element in the form. That value gets appended to the url when form is submitted via a click.

E.g. run the following example, and look at the url in the address bar after you click

      Select, copy,paste into notepad, save as c:\temp\google.htm
      Then type that path into address bar in your browser -->

<form name="magic" target=_self method="GET" action="http://www.google.ca/search">
<input type=submit name="sendme" value="Google.ca">
<input type=text name=q size=31 maxlength=2048 value="key" title="Search">
</form>
<a href="#" onclick="document.magic.action='http://www.google.com/search';document.magic.submit();"><B>Search Google.com</B></a>
</html>
