IWebBrowser2 queries

I have an instance of a browser control in an MDI child window.  I want to make the browser in the child window read only.  This implies no keyboard inputs and mouse clicks should work unless my application turns it on.  Mouse movements should be reflected I would also like to modify content of the page on view.

Sample code in C/C++ in MFC would be really terrific.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try to overload the PreTranslateMessage member function of your browser control class.

Ther you could catch all messages directed to the control and decide whether to let them pass or "eat" them.

BOOL MyBrowserClass::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
    if (pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN)
        return TRUE;   // handled

    // not handled; will be handled by the control
    return FALSE;

Note, you must be careful to not making the control unusable.
