Block Ctrl+O in a comcontrol
« on: September 05, 2013, 04:51:25 pm »
Hi,

I am displaying an html page in a comcontrol but the user is able to navigate away from that page if they hit Ctrl+O.  The problem is my exe is running with elevated permissions so, the user could navigate to another file and install something they shouldn't have access to.


How would I block the Ctrl+O, or display the dialog with lower permissions, etc.?

Thanks

There are ways to intercept keystrokes, but I'm not convinced it would be that efficient. If your script uses a dynamic dialog, you might store the comcontrol's title then set up a timer and if the title changes pop-up a warning and re-navigate to the original page.

Sounds like you are using the WebBrowser component to display your HTML.  You could switch to the MSHTML component to display your html which does not have the ctrl+O functionality.  Alternatively, you could add a navigate event handler to your dialog in a dialog callback procedure and block any navigation you do not wish the user to perform.

The WinBatch consolidated help file covers this topic but the coverage is a bit scattered and takes a bit to wrap the mind around.  There should be a few examples in the tech db (a link to the Tech Database is provided at the top of this page) that might make things easier to grasp.

Turns out that the MSHTML COMCONTROL in the WIL dialogs will ignore those IE keystrokes.  Here is some sample code I came up with:


Code: Winbatch

Re: Block Ctrl+O in a comcontrol

Hi,

Your example does block the Ctrl+O but, it isn't showing pictures (local html files), where would I find information on a navigate event handler?

Thanks

I haven't been able to find a solution to handle those keystrokes using COM events. The WIL dialog currently supports disabling the context menu like this: http://techsupt.winbatch.com/webcgi/webbatch.exe?techsupt/tsleft.web+WinBatch/Dialog~Editor/Dialog~Editor~version~6.X/COMCONTROL+Disable~the~Context~Menu~on~a~WebPage~in~Dialog.txt


WinBatch adds several properties to the programming models of Internet Explorer components. These properties give you additional control over the appearance and behavior of both the WebBrowser Control and the MSHTML component. The following properties are provided by WIL to modify the behavior and appearance of both of the WebBrowser Control and the MSHTML component.

Quote
Scrollable
 Set this property to @TRUE to allow the user to scroll the content displayed by the control. The user cannot scroll the content of the control when the property is set to @FALSE. When set to @TRUE scroll bars are displayed in the control. The default for this property is @TRUE.
 
FlatScrollBars
 When this property is set to @TRUE control scrollbars have a flat appearance. This property has no effect unless the Scrollable property is set to @TRUE. The FlatScrollBars property is set to @FALSE by default.
 
ContextMenu
 This property controls the display of context menus when a user right-clicks on the control. When set to @TRUE the controls context menu is displayed. When set to @FALSE a right-click has no effect. The default for this property is @TRUE.
 
ThreeDBorder
 Use this property to control the appearance of the controls border. This property affects the displayed documents border and any framesets within the document. Set the property to @TRUE to turn on 3-D borders.  The default for this property is @FALSE.

I wonder if we might need to add a property to disable key accelerators.
