How to use jquery to close the modal window in the w3schools example when user clicks outside of modal window?

link :
http://www.w3schools.com/howto/tryit.asp?filename=tryhow_css_modal2

existing code:

window.onclick = function(event) {
if (event.target == modal) {
modal.style.display = "none";
}
}


changed as per Jquery:

$(window).on('click', function(event){
if(event.target == $('#myModal')){
$('#myModal').css({display: "none"});
}
});


event is firing, but if condition is not passing.
Can you suggest the way to do it.

It seems a same question about closing modal, but my question asked about closing the modal window when user clicked on outside area of modal. How to close a modal by clicking outside the modal window? contains about closing modal window when user clicks on close button. Thankyou.

Answer

Try to match id instead of whole object like,

$(window).on('click', function(event){
    if(event.target.id == 'myModal'){
        $('#myModal').css({display: "none"});
    }
});

// Get the button that opens the modal
var btn = document.getElementById("myBtn");
var modal = document.getElementById('myModal');

// Get the <span> element that closes the modal
var span = document.getElementsByClassName("close")[0];

// When the user clicks the button, open the modal
btn.onclick = function() {
    modal.style.display = "block";
}

// When the user clicks on <span> (x), close the modal
span.onclick = function() {
    modal.style.display = "none";
}

// When the user clicks anywhere outside of the modal, close it
/*window.onclick = function(event) {
    if (event.target == modal) {
        modal.style.display = "none";
    }
}*/
$(window).on('click', function(event){
    if(event.target.id == 'myModal'){
        $('#myModal').css({display: "none"});
    }
});
/* The Modal (background) */
