Hi E's,
I have this code:
$("#one, #two").focus(function(){
    alert($(this).is(":focus"));
    }); 

Open in new window

And I have to know what was the id that triggered the event.
The output of this code is false!
How I know if it is the #one or the #two id that triggered the event?

The best regards, JC
