I have an editable div which acts as a WYSIWYG editor on the page. There is also a toolbar on the page which hold the buttons for bold/italic/etc...

Is there any way I could put a onblur event on my div where I could determine that the element getting focus is in the toolbar ? Basically I want to do something when the div loses focus BUT ONLY if the user is clicking something on the toolbar.

And because of this particular layout, I absolutely cannot make the div and toolbar part of the same parent element - at least not when they are by themselves. There would have to be other elements included which I'd want something special to happen when they gain focus after the div...

I guess one thing I can do is keep track of the last focused div so when a user clicks one of those buttons it knows what to apply the style to?
