    Event delegation

    There are two ways of implementing event delegation for this event : by using the focusin event in browsers that support it (all browsers but Firefox), or by setting the "useCapture" parameter of addEventListener to true:

    <form id="form">
      <input type="text">
      <input type="password">
    </form>
    
    <script>
      var form = document.getElementById("form");
      form.addEventListener("focus", function( event ) {
        event.target.style.outline = "1px solid pink";    
      }, true);
      form.addEventListener("blur", function( event ) {
        event.target.style.outline = "";    
      }, true);
    </script>
