    Hi

    Acatually what you are trying to achieve by disabling Print Screen function which I think impossible to do.

    If you search the web you can find lots of screen capturing programs using which people can override whatever thing you've done.

    If you are dealing with Images commercially and people used to copy down your images using scree capturing functions then make sure that the displayed items are not at their best quality.

    I think there is no point in going behind a functionality which will create only burden to others unnecessarily.

    But if you still wants to restrict others printing your content of ur web page u can hide the page contents using a CSS while they try to print it.

    <style media="print">
    body
    {
    display:none;
    }
    </style>

    Like the above one u can create ur own styles for different images if u want

    if anybody tries to print he won't be able to print the contents. Like that u can restrict but i don't think screen capturing can be restricted.

    Hope this will help

    Why would you want to disable the printscreen button anyway?

    I tried that link and my browser gave me a warning and an option to reject the application. I chose reject and print screen still worked for capturing an image of the current screen.

    Don't mess with the user's OS. There is another more effective way of protecting content that is worth protecting - copyright. And, as already noted in this thread, for images - just use lower resolution images. These are fine for the web, but aren't useful for much else. If it is web quality images you are selling though, best to watermark them when displayed as samples.
