Preventing event propagation
posted 4 years ago
I have some code similar to the following. There is an onclick handler on a div element which contains an embedded anchor element. Clicking on the anchor element always seems to invoke the the div onclick handler. The desired action is to have the browser open the default email editor and return with div element onclick event invoked when a user clicks anywhere inside the div element EXCEPT for the anchor link. Is this possible? The application uses jQuery so I have access to that functionality if jQuery contains some way to achieve the desired action.
