Disabling Date-Time Changes

Do you know that you can programmatically stop the user changing the date and time of a Pocket PC device?

This is useful if your applications need to take time accurately for some reason from the device.

The following code will disable the user from accessing the date time changing settings using his Windows Mobile powered device.

  1. private void btnDisableClock_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  2. {
  3.     RegistryKey hklm = Registry.LocalMachine;
  4.     hklm = hklm.OpenSubKey(@"\Software\Microsoft\Clock\", true);
  5.     System.Byte[] offValue = new byte[1];
  6.     offValue[0] = 0x30;
  7.     hklm.SetValue("AppState", offValue);
  8.     lblTitle.Text = "Change Clock Status - Disabled";
  9. }


If you want to re-enable the setting, to make the user able to change the data and time use the below code.

  1. private void btnEnableClock_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  2. {
  3.     RegistryKey hklm = Registry.LocalMachine;
  4.     hklm = hklm.OpenSubKey(@"\Software\Microsoft\Clock\", true);
  5.     System.Byte[] offValue = new byte[1];
  6.     offValue[0] = 0x11;
  7.     hklm.SetValue("AppState", offValue);
  8.     lblTitle.Text = "Change Clock Status - Enabled";
  9. }

Disabling Right Click

To disable right click context menu you can use one of the following methods.

Method 1 – Using attribute oncontextmenu attribute of the body tag.
By using this you can block the right click action and the context menu without using JavaScript.

  1. <body oncontextmenu="return false">

This will be useless if you need to do some action on the click. In such a case use the Method 2.


Method 2 – Using JavaScript.

Place the following JavaScript and modify the script as you need. This will just show a popup window to the user saying that Right clicking is disabled.

  1. <script language="javascript">
  2.     document.onmousedown = disableRightClick;
  3.     function disableRightClick(e) {
  4.         if (event.button == 2) {
  5.             alert("Right click is disabled.");
  6.             return false;
  7.         }
  8.     }
  9. </script>

Finding the Image Format

Here is a small code that I wrote to find the image format of an image.

This code will check for the raw image format of the image you select and will display in a pop up window.

Hope this helps.

  1. using System.Drawing.Imaging;

  1. private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  2. {
  3.     openFileDialog1.ShowDialog();
  4.     Image img = Image.FromFile(openFileDialog1.FileName);
  5.     ImageFormat imgfmt = img.RawFormat;
  6.     if (imgfmt.Equals(ImageFormat.Bmp))
  7.         MessageBox.Show(ImageFormat.Bmp.ToString());
  8.     else if (imgfmt.Equals(ImageFormat.Jpeg))
  9.         MessageBox.Show(ImageFormat.Jpeg.ToString());
  10.     else if (imgfmt.Equals(ImageFormat.Tiff))
  11.         MessageBox.Show(ImageFormat.Tiff.ToString());
  12.     else if (imgfmt.Equals(ImageFormat.Wmf))
  13.         MessageBox.Show(ImageFormat.Wmf.ToString());
  14.     else if (imgfmt.Equals(ImageFormat.Icon))
  15.         MessageBox.Show(ImageFormat.Icon.ToString());
  16.     else if (imgfmt.Equals(ImageFormat.Png))
  17.         MessageBox.Show(ImageFormat.Png.ToString());
  18.     else if (imgfmt.Equals(ImageFormat.Gif))
  19.         MessageBox.Show(ImageFormat.Gif.ToString());
  20. }
