How to cancel submit on AjaxForm

i'm working with jquery plugin(ajax form), i try to implementing something like this

$("#MyFormID").ajaxForm({ dataType: "json", resetForm: true, beforeSubmit: function() { //validateData returns boolean if(validateData()){ // continue submit }else{ //cancel submit } }, success: function(json) { //show success notification } });

is there a way to stop the ajax from submiting the form?. on beeforesubmit function maybe?


You can use return false; in beforeSubmit function to prevent form submission.

Call xhr.abort() in beforeSend callback.
