hello!

Please tell me if there is a program that will let you encrypt an attachment so that the person receiving it won't be able to save it or print it. I want them ONLY to be able to see it on their screen.

Thank you!

I know I may not seem like much help, but any file that can be opened to the screen, can be printed using the print screen button.

Maybe if you can elaborate your idea, there could be a work-around.

Hi!
Thank you for your expeditious reply.

What about a website? Can I build a website that does not allow people to right-click on the screen, print, or save anything?

I provide a testing service - so I need to give each person a password to access a website to get the test (they can download it or just view it online.)

Thanks again!

Kelly :thumbsup:

I have seen some sites that when you try to right-click it, it says something about access denied. Not sure how they did it, or even if that would disable the print screen button also. Maybe a programming person could help you better.

If I can find that site again, I will save it, and try some reverse engineering to figure it out.

Thank you for the advice.

Could you recommend another forum that would be more appropriate?

I did find the site that had the right-click disabled. I did a screen print to it, and it came up just as it was suppose to.

It did make me think of a different way that it might be able to be done. I noticed that some sites that have streaming video will not screen print properly. Everything but the video (even a frame of the video) would not be on the screen print. Maybe you could place the image as a streaming video, even though it is a static picture. Elaborating, you could have it set up as needing a consistent stream from the server at all times, or the picture would show a broken link. I am not familiar with how it could be sent up, but the limited knowledge in web page design may have a code like this:

<a href="I video.rm">Click here to see the video</a>
(where I video.rm is a video of your static picture, in Real Media format [rm in filename])


Again, I am not experienced in this, but perhaps someone else could assist in more detail. This suggestion is just thinking out loud on a possible solution.


Grinler, thanks for the move of the thread.


Edited: Its ok kcstout, it has already been moved.
