Hi Experts

I have a div layer that appears onclick.

My question is that to hide the layer I have a X with a onclick style.display='none'

How can i make it so that if I click anywhere on the screen that is not in the layer, the layer hides?

Cheers

<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>

    height: 100px;
    width: 100px;
    display:none;
    border:1px solid black
}
</style>
<script type="text/javascript">
document.onclick=check;
function check(e){
  var target = (e && e.target) || (event && event.srcElement);
  var obj = document.getElementById('mydiv');
  var obj2 = document.getElementById('sho');
  var parent = checkParent(target);
  if(parent){obj.style.display='none'}
  if(target==obj2){obj.style.display='block'}
}
function checkParent(t){
  while(t.parentNode){
    if(t==document.getElementById('mydiv')){
      return false
    }
    t=t.parentNode

}
</script>
