Click away listener

Detect if a click event happened outside of an element. It listens for clicks that occur somewhere in the document.


For instance, if you need to hide a menu dropdown when people click anywhere else on your page:

<ClickAwayListener onClickAway={handleClickAway}>
  <div className={classes.wrapper}>
    <button type="button" onClick={handleClick}>
      Open menu dropdown
    {open ? (
      <div className={classes.div}>Click me, I will stay visible until you click outside.</div>
    ) : null}

Notice that the component only accepts one child element. You can find a more advanced demo on the Menu documentation section.
