Disable context menu for AxAcroPDF (COM Component) in

Apr 16, 2012 8:20 PM


In my application, I have the COM component AxAcroPDF to load some sensitive data for my client. The client have a requirement which are the following :


1. Context Menu should be disable. - Meaning, when user right click on the PDF document nothing should be pop up.

2. Copy functions from key board should be disable also.

3. Print Screen function also should be disable.

I have tried many ways, including IMessageFilter but I could not achieve my objective.

Need your kind help on this.


Thanks in advance

    Disabling the Context Menu and the Copy functions can be accomplished with a custom plugin (in C/C++) for Acrobat or Reader.


    Print screen is an OS issue, you will need to solve that outside our SDK.  (and don't forget to also block users with digital cameras from taking pictures of the screen).
