doAction( “click_overlay” )

doAction( "click_overlay", $overlay );

The user clicked (or tapped) on the background overlay.


$overlay jQuery, required
The jQuery object of the overlay element.


// Clicking the overlay will hide it.
// To test this, create a Popup with the option "Close on Background-Click: NO".
// Of course, you need to click on the background to see the effect ;)
DiviArea.addAction( 'click_overlay', function() {


This action is the fired before any other check is done – it simply means “the overlay is visible and the user clicked it“.

When the current Popup is set to “Close on Background-Click: NO” then nothing else will happen after this action was fired.
