I do not know that they do detect it. I would imagine that it is handled in the Web engine that the browser uses.
I would imagine that major browsers use some other Web rendering engine. The Firefox family of browsers uses a version of Gecko that works on Android, for example. I would expect others to include their own builds of Chromium via the NDK.
Even for those that use
WebView, there may not be a reason for them to find out about when the user focuses on an input box in their Java code.

I through Android
Presentation create back-end service and put WebView on external extend display because on the extend display WebView cannot get focus, so I can not open the soft-keyboard and make the input that is the reason I am seeking some solution, I want to make a kind of app which can support visit a website on extend display and doing other things on the phone. Input is a big problem in this case

Base on your
WebView Sensor project, I have successfully set onfocus() attribute for all INPUT and TEXTAREA in the webpage, when user click
textarea I can through an
EditView get and set text and use soft-keyboard in cellphone screen. But I found, this solution not 100% cover all webpage, some time is not working, for example, Office 365 login page, I can set text in account name and password, but I will get warning “account name is not valid” when I click login, in effect all input is correct. Do you have any other good suggestions? I steel seeking a more powerful solution. Thank you so much.

You could look at other Web rendering engines, such as GeckoView, to see if they give you more options.
Other than that, sorry, I am out of ideas.

If you mean "how do I get an instance of
WindowManager", I don’t think that’s possible.
