Definition and Usage

The focusout event occurs when an element (or any elements inside it) loses focus.

The focusout() method attaches a function to run when a focusout event occurs on the element, or any elements inside it.

Unlike the blur() method, the focusout() method also triggers if any child elements lose focus.

Tip: This method is often used together with the focusin() method.
