I have an application in oracleforms 10 and I need to disable the printscreen key on some forms. Has anyone been able to perform?
Thank you

Try something like this: find FORMSWEB.CFG file on the IAS. In the same directory *should* exist the .RES file which is used to map keyboard keys. See whether you can map "Print Screen" key to nothing. Finally, you'd put a line like
into the FORMSWEB.CFG file.

However, although it might work (I don't know, I never tried it), it has two major drawbacks:
  • it affects all forms
  • it works only when your Forms window is active. How will you prevent someone from resizing the Forms window, clicking on the Desktop and pressing the "Print Screen" key?
In other words, I'm not sure whether you can do it in a way you want it.
