I have a set of 2 jquery buttons, one of them is logout and one will show a drop down menu, I have copied the example in the jquery ui page.
The code works pretty fine, so when I click on the settings button the menu is displayed, when I click on the the button or outside the menu is hiding when.
  What I am missing is when I press on the same button (settings) the menu hides if it is displayed, can some one tell me how to do it please? below is my html code:
<?php

?>
<html>
    <head>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/jquery.ui.all.css">
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/ribbon.css">
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/demos.css">
        <style>
           #toolbar {
                        padding: 4px;
                        background: #FFFFFF;
                        display: inline-block;
                }
                /* support: IE7 */
            *+html #toolbar {
                        display: inline;
                }
            .ui-menu {
                      width: 150px;
                      background: #FFFFFF;
                     }

You should use jquery's .toggle() method. instead of doing a show() or hide() on the menu element change that so that the onClick handler uses toggle(). That way you can get rid of some code as well. Small example
.click: function() {
    $('menu_element').toggle();
}

$(function() {

    var $logout = $("#logout").button({ text: false, icons: { primary: "ui-icon-key" } });
	var $settings = $("#settings").button({ text: false, icons: { primary: "ui-icon-gear", secondary: "ui-icon-triangle-1-s" } });
    var $menu = $("#settings").parent().next().show();

    $(document).click(function() {
        $menu.hide();
        $settings.removeClass("active");
    });

    $settings.click(function(evt) {
        evt.stopImmediatePropagation();
        $(this).toggleClass("active")
        $menu.css("display", $(this).hasClass("active")?"block":"none");
        $menu.position({ my: "left top", at: "left bottom", of: this });
	});

    $settings.parent().buttonset().next().hide().menu();

    $menu.hover(function() {
        $(this).addClass("overme");
    }, function() {
        if($(this).hasClass("overme")) {        
    		$(this).hide();
            $(this).removeClass("overme");
            $settings.removeClass("active");
        }
    });
    
    $menu.click(function(evt) {
        alert($(evt.target).text());
    });
});
