Using javascript how do I set focus on the JCE editor ?

As a bit of background, I'm building a custom component with nested comments. The comment form is loaded in a hidden div and moved (using jQuery .append) to the appropriate container when a reply button is pressed. The field is re-initialised with the following code and it all works fine.


I just can't set the focus on the JCE editor after it's displayed. I've tried the following.

I'm sure I'm missing something really simple? Thanks in advance

To answer my own question, the answer is


OK. I'm a doofus. I was testing these functions from the console but you can't set focus elsewhere if the focus is on the console. Works fine in code.
