IE Disable Close
Posted on 2006-07-09
Here is the situation. I have written a science display program using Flash (thanks for the help EE). I have it installed on an old 98 machine running IE6 and it runs fine. I have it running in full screen mode with the menu bar on autohide.
The biggest problem is that kids are smart and many like to break things. Therefore when someone else wants to run the game (called "Mr Science Guy") it may have been shut down by the previous mischievous user. I want to disable the toolbar completely in IE6. If that can't be done, I want to hide all of the buttons (Back, prev, etc) and disable the Exit button so that the only way to exit the program is ALT-F4. Since there is no accessible keyboard (the only input for the user is through a rollerball mouse) there is no need to worry about keyboard shortcuts or anything else keyboard related.
The computer is set up in a cabinet so access to the puter itself is not an issue. It is an old computer running Win98 and IE6. The Flash program is compiled in version 6 mode. Is there a way to handle this using Flash?
