find the control using 'this' parameter in javascript

I have two controls (textbox) on a page  having onblur="lineNoMask(this, event);"

In the lineNoMask javascript function, I need to identify which control invokes onblur event.

How can I find the control with 'this' parameter?

Identify it how? Get its id? Inside your function you would just refer to the "id" member:

function lineNoMask(ctrl)

Open in new window

this contains a reference to the control that invokes onblur event (this will point to the correct text box), thus use it in your lineNoMask method accordingly.
function lineNoMask(targetControl)
    //use target control as you see fit
