You can detect the loss of the focus of an iframe with this small piece of jQuerycode:

$(document).focusout( function(){
       setTimeout(function() {
       // used setTimeout to make sure the event is passing the event loop and call your logic as well
       if (document.activeElement instanceof HTMLIFrameElement) {
             // do stuff

it has been solved using the below method:

 var eventMethod = window.addEventListener
                        ? "addEventListener"
                        : "attachEvent";
            var eventer = window[eventMethod];
            var messageEvent = eventMethod === "attachEvent"
                ? "onmessage"
                : "message";
            eventer(messageEvent, function (e) {
               alert('Message from iframe just came!');
