I have an image control and i want to make it 'not so easy'
to copy it. I very well understand 100% copy-prevention is not
So my questions are two, one specific and other general
1. Specific : How to disable the print option from appearing
/ functioning that pops out when i right click on my image control
2. General : How within flex this problem of preventing
copying of an image in image control is tackled. Though i know
nothing can be done about ctrl-printscreen.
Look into flash.ui.ContextMenu class. You can edit the
context menu when the user right-clicks on stage. Anyways the user
cannot download images within a SWF by right-clicking; unless you
programmed it to behave like that.
As for your general question, the user would have to
decompile the SWF to retrieve an image. If you have your source
code viewable, the user can also retrieve it there.
