Hide div controls when clicked outside div

Member 7917182 asked:

Open original thread
function HideContent(d) {
    if (d.length < 1) { return; }
    document.getElementById(d).style.display = "none";
function ShowContent(d) {
    if (d.length < 1) { return; }
    var dd = document.getElementById(d);
    AssignPosition(dd); = "block";

<div id="maindiv">
       <label id="lblText" runat="server" onmouseover="ShowContent('tooltip2'); return true;">
           Mouseover for Tooltip
       <div id="tooltip2" class="tooltip">
           <label id="lblTooltip" runat="server" onmouseout="HideContent('tooltip2'); return true;" >
               This is it

Here, I have a label - lblText and on mouseover, a tooltip shows. Again on mouseover of tooltip, the tooltip hides. There is no other way of hiding the tooltip. I want a click event now, when the user clicks anywhere on the page, the tooltip hides. I have been trying to do it, but no success.
