Close Modal Popup OnClick

Hello, I am using a ajax ModalPopupExtender.  I was wondering how i can hide the modal popup if a user clicks outside the panel (in the grayed out area around the panel).  I have a button on the page which will hide the popup when it is clicked.  How can I call the buttons click event when a user clicks outside the popup using java script?

Thanks

Hello,

In that case, I think you'd be better off using PopupControl extender, rather than ModalPopup.
It will, automatically, close when the user clicks outside the window.
