use type="button" if you don't want to submit

button elements are type="submit" by default and will trigger submit events on your form (which, more often than not, is not your intention)

Try to explicitly set type="button" on your button elements that are not true submit buttons (e.g. cancel)

never tried that, but its an option!

Usually when i need a "no submit" button I go for onclick='foo();return false' or onclick='return foo()'
