Hiding a div with jquery with an outside the element click

I'm using the jquery selectbox plugin for a new project.
http://www.bulgaria-web-developers.com/projects/javascript/selectbox/

Is there a way to tell jquery to close it if a click isn't within the dropdown box?

They have a close button in the demo, but I want to apply the same idea to the whole page with out adding an additional element.

The function for this is:
$("#selectboxid").selectbox('close');

I just really need to know how to set the trigger outside of the menu. Jquery's datepicker (http://jqueryui.com/demos/datepicker/) calendar uses jqueries ui and manages to hide the element when the calendar is showing
