I’ve been searching for a way to make a click function work
only on a certain element, excluding the element’s children..

After a short search, I’ve found this function

1
2
3
4
5
$(".example").click(function(){
  $(this).fadeOut("fast");
}).children().click(function(e) {
  return false;
});

However it was disturbing some click functions I made for the child
elements, so, I built something a little better:

1
2
3
4
5
	$(".example").click(function(data, handler){
	  if (data.target == this) {
		//Do Stuff (only element clicked, not children)

	  }
	});

Not very complex.
