onfocus onblur countdown timer problem

Postby woohoogf » Sat Jun 18, 2011 2:51 pm

Hello I'm newbie in javascript and worked hard today on this and couldn't find the solution.
Please help me.

if (/*@cc_on!@*/false) {
document.onfocusin = startB;
document.onfocusout = stopB;
} else {
window.onfocus = startB;
window.onblur = stopB;

var x = 1000;
var y = 1;

function startB() {
if (x !== 'ok') {
x = x - y;
document.form.num.value = x;
timeoutID=setTimeout("startB()", 1000);
if (x == 0) {
x = 'ok';
document.form.num.value = x;

function stopB() {
<body onLoad="startB()">
<form name="form">
<input name="num" size="10" readonly="readonly" type="text">

When I open this page it counts down with value 1/sec normally and when I change window/tab it stops, I again come back it's continues 1/sec, this is what I want, but I have a big problem --> WHEN I GO TO THIS LINK AND CHANGE WINDOW/TAB VERY QUICKLY, THAT IS STILL UNLOADED, IT STARTS COUNTING DOWN IN ONBLUR STATUS, AND WHEN I COME BACK TO ONFOCUS STATUS, THE FUNCTION IS READ TWICE AND STARTS COUNTING DOWN 1/0.5sec... DOUBLE.

Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks in advance.

you can enable clicks on tabs only when document.body is loaded, like this, no quick tab change..
