I have a check box in tag of table header and i have sort option enabled for the data table. When I click the check box the sorting of the table happens, I want the sorting to occur when i click on the header of the table but i do not want sorting to occur when i click on the checkbox which is present in the header of the table.

This should work in IE8, firefox, chrome and Safari.

I tried adding event.stopPropogation but it works only in chrome and safari.

    Add a call to `stopPropagation` to stop the event bubbling up the document. See:

    The issue has been resolved. thanks for your support. i had to call the event.stopPropogation() at higher level.
