Workaround with e.preventDefault(); not working in IE

While using e.preventDefault(); as in below code:
function preventEvent(e) {     e.preventDefault(); }
With IE browsers, I got an error message as: Object doesn't support property or method 'preventDefault'
After spent some time I found out a way to handle this, I have created one function as:
//Function to prevent Default Events function prevDefault(e) { if (e.preventDefault)         e.preventDefault(); else         e.returnValue = false; }
for IE browsers it will set e.returnValue as false and our required functionality work like charm, now just call this function wherever you want to use e.preventDefault(); as:
function preventEvent(e) {     prevDefault(e); }

Hope it helps!!!
