  Old  Disabling Middle Click?

What is the best method of disabling middle click?

I'm trying to stop users scrolling a page this way.

Quirksmode has a good section on this:

Another good article:

Google also helps
http://www.google.com/search?q=middl...ent+javascript

However, I'd use jQuery.
Code:
$("#foo").live('click', function(e) { 
   if( e.which == 2 ) {
      e.preventDefault();
      alert("middle button"); 
   }
});
.. where preventDefault() function prevents the default function of the middle click (the alert can be removed).

Hope that helps

Just remember that it is javascript so anyone can easily bypass it.

Indeed. But it's intention is good. Nothing malicious in it, just to stop people getting lost while navigating.

getting lost ??? o_O, sorry for offtopic but maybe you should try to make your page less confusing in that case?

because with disabling middle click you will only stop them from scrolling with MOUSE, but not with arrows or space

I didn't mention I was allowing arrow keys either. ;-)
