You can't cancel the current request to the server after the panel.set_value()
client-side method has been called. The response can be canceled, but this is after the trip to the server has been made so it wouldn't be of much help in your case.
My suggestion is to perform an additional check before initiating the update process. If you still have problems please provide some sample code and we will do our best to offer a working solution.
