Dear All,

My website is using MySql database and php. I intend to block users from downloading and saving pdf file while viewing it online. From the php forum, I know that saving file could be disabled if javascript is used to construct the page. Anyone has such javascript?

Any help is much appreciated.

That's impossible... if you're serving the file ever, the user already has it.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
