How to set up a click listener on RecyclerView in conjunction with
an adapter and a click listener on items
NOT only *RecyclerView itemClickListener*
*RecyclerView onClickListener* and *RecyclerView itemClickListener* together
often such a solution is needed to close pop-up messages 
when clicking anywhere on the screen with RecyclerView list 
This code is more like a crutch but works great for me
