JQuery dialog close on click outside with example, someone asked me to explain?

In this article, I will show you how to close the jQuery ui dialog on click elsewhere on the page. You can specify animated effect for the dialog to hide/ show properties.

Normally dialog has close button, if you want to close the dialog popup by clicking the close button. Below example makes an easy click anywhere on the page dialog will close.
