Event.stopPropagation()

The stopPropagation() method of the Event interface prevents further propagation of the current event in the capturing and bubbling phases. It does not, however, prevent any default behaviors from occurring; for instance, clicks on links are still processed. If you want to stop those behaviors, see the preventDefault() method.

Syntax

event.stopPropagation();

Parameters

None.

Return value

undefined.

Examples

See Example 5: Event Propagation in the Examples chapter for a more detailed example of this method and event propagation in the DOM.
