    event.cancelBubble Redirect 1

    Summary

    Deprecated
    This feature has been removed from the Web. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Do not use it in old or new projects. Pages or Web apps using it may break at any time.

    Indicates if event bubbling for this event has been canceled or not.

    Syntax

    event.cancelBubble = bool;
    var bool = event.cancelBubble;
    

    bool is the boolean value of true or false.

    Notes

    cancelBubble is set to false by default. This allows the event to bubble up the DOM, if it is a bubbleable event. Setting this property to true stops the event from bubbling up the DOM. Not all events are allowed to bubble up the DOM.

    Use event.stopPropagation() instead of this non-standard method.
