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. It also does not prevent immediate propagation to other event-handlers. If you want to stop those, see stopImmediatePropagation().
