Hello,

I have a query regarding window and document objects based on modal window.
Below is my code

My question is regarding this block
Should this not be 'document.onclick' instead of 'window.onclick'?

Below are definitions :
The window object represents the browser window.
The document object represents the HTML document loaded in that window.

Even though replacing window with document works, I want to know what is right here.
Is it right to click anywhere on browser to close modal?

So what does that tell you?

Here's an instructive exercise: put a click handler on both. What happens? What does the result mean?

Hi Bear,

There's absolutely no difference if I replace window with document and vice versa.
In both cases, when I click on either x or the gray screen, the modal window is closed.
What would be the difference between browser window and html document loaded in the window?
