View Full Version : Preventing "Save as"

06-25-2005, 07:01 PM
I have a website where I don't want people being able to download my files, particularly the flash swfs. Does anyone know how to achieve this?

For example, in IE, when you go to file --> save as, you can save the content of a page. How do I prevent this?

You can't. But you can use simple javascript functions so that the user gets alerts on right click on the images or flash movies. But that will only work with newbies.

The .swfs can be protected by Flash - this won't stop people from downloading them, but will stop them from opening and editing them and seeing your ActionScript inside.

Maybe that'll be enough.
