NOTE: Using stopEventPropagation() is something that should be avoided as it breaks normal event flow in the DOM. See this article for more information. Consider using this method instead

Attach a click event to the document body which closes the window. Attach a separate click event to the container which stops propagation to the document body.

$(window).click(function() {
//Hide the menus if visible
});

$('#menucontainer').click(function(event){
    event.stopPropagation();
});
