We can lost focus from a window by using blur() method. Here is the syntax
Once the focus is lost then the window will be minimized ( not closed ) .
To get the window again we have to use window.focus()

Check the status of the window focus by using document.hasFocus()

You can see the source code of above demo here

function to_open(){"moveby-child.htm","Ratting","width=250,height=150,left=150,0,top=200,status=0,");

function to_focus(){
tm.focus();   // Keeping the focus on small window

function to_blur(){
tm.blur();   // Keeping the focus out on small window
function display_c(){
var refresh=1000; // Refresh rate in milli seconds

function display_msg() {
if ( document.hasFocus() ) {
document.getElementById('my_msg').style.backgroundColor = "#00f000";	
document.getElementById('my_msg').innerHTML = "This document is in Focus ";
document.getElementById('my_msg').style.backgroundColor = "#f07814";
document.getElementById('my_msg').innerHTML = "This document is NOT in Focus ";
