Hide popup when clicking outside

    $(document).on(‘click touch’, function (e) {

      First, the “function (e) ” should be “function (event) “;
      Second, this will hide your .modal, when .modal_wrapper is clicked, and I presume that .modal_wrapper is full screen width and height and that .modal is centred inside.
      This will work in this particular case.

      How about if instead of the modal, which has a wrapper that covers the entire screen so anything else in the page is basically un-clickable, you want to hide some sort of dropdown or tooltip?

      Thanks for the comment.
