Use jQuery to hide a DIV when the user clicks outside of it

606

I am using this code:

$('body').click(function() {
   $('.form_wrapper').hide();
});

$('.form_wrapper').click(function(event){
   event.stopPropagation();
});

And this HTML:

<div class="form_wrapper">
   <a class="agree" href="javascript:;">I Agree</a>
   <a class="disagree" href="javascript:;">Disagree</a>
</div>

The problem is that I have links inside the DIV and when they no longer work when clicked.

You'd better go with something like this:

var mouse_is_inside = false;

$(document).ready(function()
{
    $('.form_content').hover(function(){ 
        mouse_is_inside=true; 
    }, function(){ 
        mouse_is_inside=false; 
    });

    $("body").mouseup(function(){ 
        if(! mouse_is_inside) $('.form_wrapper').hide();
    });
});
