jQuery Difference Between event.stopPropagation And event.stopImmediatePropagation

event.stopPropagation() allows other handlers on the same element to be executed, while event.stopImmediatePropagation() prevents every event from running. For example, see below jQuery code block.

$(“p”).click(function(event){
event.stopImmediatePropagation();
});
$(“p”).click(function(event){
// This function won’t be executed
$(this).css(“background-color”, “#f00”);
});

If event.stopPropagation was used in previous example, then the next click event on p element which changes the css will fire, but in case event.stopImmediatePropagation(), the next p click event will not fire.
