right click not working in IE on modal dialog page

window.showModalDialog(url, "", center:yes; dialogWidth:503px; location:no;dialogHeight:500px; edge:raised; help:no; resizable:no; scroll:no; status:no; statusbar:no; toolbar:no; menubar:no; addressbar:no;");

I opened the modaldialg using above code but when i tried to copy or right click on the page i couldn't do it in IE8.Is there any way for right clicking on the modal dialog page to see the view source?
