When I run a Silverlight app. out of browser on the Windows platform, I'd like to create a keyboard filter than allows me to test for the PrtScrn key and override it.  Can this be done from Silverlight?

Curious.

Here is a reasonably good approach to image leeching:

Thanks. Any idea if I can create a keyboard filter to capture the PrtScrn key press? Or is there a way to ask Windows to disable that while my web p[age is showing?

you can add timer on your main page.

check every tick (like 500 ms) if window is active then clean your clipboard

Is there no way from Silverlight to inspect the key strokes? Or is it that the browser doesn ot have that capability?

Can't a web page run an ActgiveX control? And can't that filter key strokes?

It doesn't seem like it should be that hard.  The clean the clipboard method also seems like it should work but I would rather not mess with the data the user has in the clipboard if possible.
