I am using java-script in my application and i am in the middle of a bizarre situation.
I have used the below code in my page.
The problem that I am facing is after the setFocus() function is called the other function rendersection() is not called. But when i remove the setFocus() and then try, then the rendersection() is called. As seen in the above code i have also tried giving the rendersection() before the setFocus(). still it does not work. Does anyone know if i am missing anything here?
Also, when i tried to change the setFocus() to something different like putFocus or getFocus the function is called but the focus is not set to the desired field

Oh, yes, it is technically legal (though insane) -- sorry for not being clear -- but to me it looks like server-side markup and so I'm not convinced that it's really the right id and the method is actually finding anything.

sorry... I should have a bit more clearer. The js script i have shared here is used in a tool(or a platform) so the bizarre id. The id means that I am referring to an object(element) inside a page block with the id 'thePageBlock' and an element with the id 'state'. The setFocus() function works fine. It sets the focus to the correct element.
As for the error, I am not getting any in my console.
