Not worth reading

It is incorrect. It is possible to capture function keys being pressed with onkeydown. q.v. the following code:

document.onkeydown = keyhandler;

function keyhandler(e) {
if (document.layers)
Key = e.which;
Key = window.event.keyCode;
if (Key != 0)
alert("Key pressed! ASCII-value: " + Key);

This script does not capture an Alt key event in either IE 5 or NN4 on my computer. In fact there does not seem to be any way to test for an alt key press in Navigator (ref: http://tech.irt.org/articles/js195/index.htm) although I can in IE through other means than the one presented here.

Too short

Not technical enough

the code mentioned is not working fine except for the ordinary keys. I mean, when pressed control, shift or alt not giving any output into the controls as mentioned in the code.

Can anyone help me for my following problem:
I want to diable the refresh button which i can hide the tool bar but I SHOULD ALSO AVOID PRESSING F5 BY THE USER within the browser.

Awaiting your quick reply.
