Remove the focus from a button on click in JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to remove the focus from a button on click using JavaScript.

Consider, that we have the following button element in our HTML:

<button id="btn">Search</button>

To remove the focus from a button on click, call the blur() method inside the button click event handler method.

Here is an example:

const btn = document.getElementById("btn");

btn.addEventListener("click", ()=>{
    btn.blur(); // removes the focus
})

In the example above, first we accessed the button element inside the JavaScript using the document.getElementById(), then we added a click event listener to the button using the addEventListener() method.

So, whenever a user clicks on the button it runs the btn.blur() method and removes the focus from it.

If you want to remove the focus from a currently active element without selecting it, call the blur() on a document.activeElement property.

Here is an example:

document.activeElement?.blur();

The document.activeElement property returns the element from a dom that currently has focus.

Full working example:

<button id="btn">Search</button>

JavaScript:

const btn = document.getElementById("btn");

btn.addEventListener("click", ()=>{
    btn.blur(); // removes the focus
})
