Answer

You can do that in Java coding very easily. If you have an Activity (even if it looks like a Dialog), then you should do

this.setFinishOnTouchOutside(false);

if you have used Dialog class, you should call

dialog.setFinishOnTouchOutside(false) 

if you want to prevent closing it open when the background activity is clicked.
