    Help me to Block function keys and other keys across IE, NS


    I use this code to block function keys (F5) . It work but cursor focus on the file upload field it not work. Can you help me.


    CODE :
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    <title>--- F5 BLOCK ---</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=tis-620">
    <script language="javascript">
    var msg = 'That functionality is restricted.';
    var asciiF5 = 116;
    if(document.all){ //ie has to block in the key down
    document.onkeydown = onKeyPress;
    else if (document.layers || document.getElementById){ //NS and mozilla have to block in the key press;
    document.onkeypress = onKeyPress;

    function onKeyPress(evt) {
    window.status = '';
    //get the event object
    var oEvent = (window.event) ? window.event : evt;
    //hmmm in mozilla this is jacked, so i have to record these seperate what key was pressed
    var nKeyCode = oEvent.keyCode ? oEvent.keyCode Event.which ? oEvent.which : void 0;
    var bIsFunctionKey = false;
    /*hmmm in mozilla the keycode would contain a function key ONLY IF the charcode IS 0
    else key code and charcode read funny, the charcode for 't'
    returns 116, which is the same as the ascii for F5
    SOOO,... to check if a the keycode is truly a function key,
    ONLY check when the charcode is null OR 0, IE returns null, mozilla returns 0
    bIsFunctionKey = asciiF5;
    //convert the key to a character, makes for more readable code
    var sChar = String.fromCharCode(nKeyCode).toUpperCase();
    //get the active tag that has the focus on the page, and its tag type
    var oTarget = (oEvent.target) ? oEvent.target : oEvent.srcElement;
    var sTag = oTarget.tagName.toLowerCase();
    var sTagType = oTarget.getAttribute("type");

    var bRet = true; //assume true as that will be the case most times
    if(sTagType != null){
    sTagType = sTagType.toLowerCase();
    if(bIsFunctionKey){ // Capture and stop these keys
    bRet = false;

    oEvent.returnValue = false;
    oEvent.cancelBubble = true;
    if(document.all){ //IE
    oEvent.keyCode = 0;
    }else{ //NS
    window.status = msg;
    return bRet;

    This code is cross-browser compatible, therefore not running on a local hta application or somesuch. Why would you want to try to remove the user's shortcuts?

    It's easy enough to remove the banned keypresses (in fact i have a script which stops sites from nulling my keypresses - so i'm not affected by disabling backspace to go one page back, i can still hit F5 to refresh, etc).

    Also, users with JavaScript disabled will be unaffected by this code.

    What's the code to be used for mate? There may be a more efficient solution available to you.

    and everybody just stares at you. But you do the same in an aeroplane, and everybody joins in."
