In this article, we would like to show you how to attach focus and blur events using jQuery.

Quick overview:

// for: <input id="my-input" type="text" />

$('#my-input').focus(function() {
    console.log('focus event occurred!');
});
      
$('#my-input').blur(function() {
    console.log('blur event occurred!');
});

Different ways how to handle focus and blur events are presented below.
