How to disable submit

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Dear Experts!

I have a kind of tricky problem:

I am using JQuery validation triggered on submit.

I am having a custom suggest dropdown, where users are likely to select by hit enter.

The problem is, that when hit enter the submit event is triggered.

How do I prevent the submit event from being triggered?

(I can cancel the submit from being carried out, but don't know how to prevent the submit event to be triggered at all).

Thanks in advance.
