This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.
This feature has been removed from the Web standards. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Avoid using it and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.
Event.cancelBubble property indicates if event bubbling for this event has been canceled or not. It is set to
false by default, allowing 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.
Event.stopPropagation() instead of this non-standard method.
event.cancelBubble = bool; var bool = event.cancelBubble;
