stop image popup toolbar in IE?

Discussion in 'HTML' started by ukr_bend@yahoo.com, Nov 23, 2005.

    I'm trying to find a way to stop the IE6 habit of poping up the
    toolbar
    banner (save, print,email, open) when the user hovers over an image in
    my webpage.
    Is there a way to encode this in the html to stop this behaviour?

    Thanks for any help

    You'll probably get answers like 'don't mess with that, the user can
    set their preference in their browser', but just in case you want to
    stop it regardless:
    <meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no">

    Btw, although this is a http-equiv tag, it doesn't work if you set it using
    real HTTP headers.

    yeah, but it's not "equiv" to anything that's in HTTP[1]

    The same, by the way, for "Refresh". There again, it purports to be
    "equiv" to something that doesn't really exist in HTTP. And again, IE
    doesn't really support it when it's presented as a real HTTP header.
    (At least, that's how it behaved when I tried it, a while back - and
    when MSIE has dug itself into a "feature", it tends to reproduce it in
    later versions too, IME).

    [1] The HTTP protocol doesn't actually *rule out* additional headers,
    so there's nothing that prevents a body from inventing one if they so
    choose.

    Botton line is it seems to work for IE4-6x. Anything to get rid of that
    annoying little menu for folks who insist using IE.

    Funny thing though, IE seems to float that menu over some images and not
    others. Haven't found a pattern yet, first iimpression seems that larger
    images get the menu and smaller ones don't, but cannot confirm. Not high
    on my to do list...

    Why?

    Els has already given you the code for it, but reconsider your motives
    for doing so. It is expected behaviour for your user, and may
    confuse/annoy them if it doesn't display.

    You assume they don't know how to save, print, email or open anything
    without that little "helper"? :)

    Well, they *are* using IE. :) But no, that's not what I meant. It may
    confuse or annoy them, but in most cases I think they will be capable of
    doing whatever they want with the image even without the toolbar. So the
    OP has achieved nothing anyway, except to frustrate his/her/its users.

    When I was still using IE as a visitor of websites I never had a clue
    where that image toolbar came from. One site had it, the other didn't. I
    liked the latter the best and accused (wrongly as I found out later) the
    first one of doing something silly to make that thing pop up.

    I agree with your conclusion so perhaps the best thing the OP could do
    is put a little message on his page explaining the situation for IE
    users and providing instructions to disable the damn thing.

    When I first saw the "IT", I (luckily) figured there was a setting for
    it somewhere, but that isn't obvious.

    It comes up on any images of a size at least 130x130, displayed using the
    <IMG> element, unless you're using an image map.

    It seems to be size related, just did not have time to fool with it,
    thanks.

    That's what the context menu is for. If one can't handle the alternate mouse
    button or the context menu button (reserved on most keyboards), a Mac is
    much needed.

    Well i would have thought the obvious reason for doing this is cause no right click code doesnt stop people from getting access to the images???? tell me if there is a better way
