MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:


The oncancel property returns the onCancel event handler code on the current element.


element.oncancel = functionRef;


The cancel event is raised when the user wants to cancel the given element.

Prevents the element from to spread, preventing any parent handlers from being notified of it.
