Disable Master Page Menu

Dear all, How can I disable the master page menu? The following line does not work. this.Master.findcontrol("menu1").visible=false;  Moreover, if this line is put before the function database processing (Code Behind) in the button click, would the menu bar become invisible during function database processing? I think it is different from web application and intranet application.

disable browser keys & menu functions

I ran across a few links on making an asp.net app fullscreen with javascript.    But I'd also like to keep users withing my app unless they log out.    How do you disable ctrl-esc, ctrl-c, window, selection & right mouse click?    Are there any other keys you can use to prevent a user from either copying data from a browser window or closing it?     That would also mean eliminating or suppressing the upper right hand minimize & close buttons in browser windows and the file menu.     If the code is specific to internet explorer then I'd also have to check whether their browsing from a firefox browser, unless the code would be the same for both.

WPF Ribbon's application menu alignment problem: bug or programmer error?

I'm using WPF 4's (in .NET 4) ribbon control, version 3.5.40729.1, in my application. The application menu and all sub-menu popups align as far left as possible, usually far outside the ribbon window. The expected location is that the application menu's left edge aligns with the ribbon window's left edge, and that sub-menu popups will align with the left edge of the right (usually recent items) content pane.

Here's an example screen shot illustrating the issue I'm having. Note that the left edge of this screen shot is the left edge of my monitor.

Here's a snippet of code showing the XAML of the RibbonWindow root element and the beginning of the ribbon declaration:


How to disable context menu command



Tim's blog post discusses commands in the rehosted designer.  This post has been very helpful.  Now what I'm trying to do is to customize the context menu that appears for activity designers.  I used the idea from the blog post to capture the designer's cut command PreviewCanExecute:

                <CommandBinding Command="sapv:DesignerView.CutCommand"  CanExecute="CommandBinding_CanCutExecute" PreviewCanExecute="CommandBinding_PreviewCanCutExecute"/>


private void CommandBinding_CanCutExecute(object sender, CanExecuteRoutedEventArgs e)
            //Doesn't do anything, but we need to subscribe to the CanExcute handler in order to get PreviewCanExecute handler called.

        private void CommandBinding_PreviewCanCutExecute(object sender, CanExecuteRoutedEventArgs e)

ASP.NET Menu with jQuery Superfish

Choosing the right type of menu for a website is not easy at all. The ASP.NET Menu Control is definitely NOT a good starting point due to the horrendous markup it renders, nor is it good for SEO because of the Markup/Content ratio, neither can it be easily styled.
