jQuery Tabs - Want to stop the tab from being accessed

Hi,
I am using jQuery Tabs and I put a click event on it as below:
If user did not fill in required fields do not go to new tab.

  $('#TABP ul li a').click(function(){
       if(check_required_fields()){
           //allow normal behavior of clicked on tab
       } else{
          // check_required_fields() alerted user with required field
          // stay on the original tab - don't go to clicked on tab
       }
  });

- Want to stop the tab from being accessed if required fields are not completed on current tab.

Any thoughts?
