Onclick check class

I'm trying to check the class on a click event to see whether to fire it or not but I cant get it working, can someone help

$("ul#menu li").click().toggle(function () {
if ($(this).is('.showlogin')){
      $("#fadeover").fadeTo("normal", 0.8);
      $(".submenu",this).toggle(400);
      $("#fadeover").removeClass('hideimage');
      },function() {
      $(".submenu",this).toggle(400);
      $("#fadeover").addClass('hideimage');
}
});

Have come back to this because I've just noticed that when the li is faded in and i click in text inputs the click event is firing making the overlay come and go.
So my thinking is that I should check if the 'clicked' object has the sub class so that it doesnt fire or is there a better way to do it?
