I have problem like this. I am not able to disable mouse right click in a input text area i was successfull making right click disable on browser window but the same is not working within text field. I want to avoid the user changing the content of text field.
For this i am using <input type="text" name="field1" value="Hello" onfocus="this.blur()">
This will work for left click but I want avoid the user changing the field value using edit menu (cut,copy,paste) by right click in the text field.
Here onfocus=this.blur() will avoid user enetering .I mean when user get the focus on the text field it immediately changes the focus from that field. So I want the user not to make the field change by right clicking and do cut,copy ,paste option ...
Or use a scriplet Either to remove event handler or to set a value.
If you doing code change to have element disabled - why don't you do one more step, and if it should be disabled use div or span or anything else instead of textarea to display it?

I know that can be done. But the issue Disabling the right click button in Textfield cant be done in the NN4.7x is a technical limitation. I need a valid proof say some link from Netscape saying that it is a bug in that version 4.7x.
I also searched in the web i was not able to get a solution or link..
Can anybody Help!
Thanks in Advance

Simple Solution: Do not use a text field at all, show the content input inside a span that looks like a textbox and place the information into a hidden element.
