How to Disable Cut, Copy and Paste in ASP.Net Control

In the real world, sometimes developers need to restrict a basic facility, like cut, copy and paste of a specific control. At that time you will need some easy way to stop these kinds of facilities.

To explain such implementation, I will use the following procedure.

Step 1

Create an ASP.Net Empty Website named "My Project".

Step 2

Add a new web form named "Default.aspx" to it.

Step 3

Add a "TextBox" control in the page named "Default.aspx" .

Step 4

  1. On Cut: By this, you can disable the "Cut" facility in the "TextBox" Control.

    Syntax: oncut= “return false”;

    return false

  2. On Copy: By this, you can disable the "Copy" facility in the "TextBox" Control.

    Syntax: oncopy= “return false”;

    oncopy

  3. On Paste: By this, you can disable the "Cut" facility in the "TextBox" Control.

    Syntax: onpaste= “return false”;

    onpaste

    To disable all of them (Cut, Copy and Paste):

    disable the All Cut Copy and Paste

In this article, I have described how to restrict the user from using cut, copy and paste.
