Topic: Unable to get property 'Contains' when using IE 11

alex9249 pro asked 4 years ago


Hello, I am getting an error when trying to using IE 11. This error only happens when using internet explorer and does now get thrown when using chrome or firefox. The error i am getting is this : Unhandled exception at line 1, column 194946 in /js/mdb.min.js 0x800a138f - JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'contains' of undefined or null reference There was a post similar to the same issue i am having 9 months ago but no solution was found. I am hoping there maybe a solution by now.   Thankss, Alex

Forgot to add that this is where its breaking in the script file: if(i.classList.contains("waves-effect")&&!(i instanceof SVGElement))

Hi there Alex,

Thanks for reaching out! It seems like the i in the i.classList.contains(... is simply not there, but why exactly (we're looking at you, IE11!) is hard to guess using just presented data - it might have to do with IE11 HTML Parsing (1) or IE11 not granting the .contains() method to SVG elements (1, 2). You can try and share your code here, but [SPOILER ALERT] there's not much we can offer to countermeasure the issue except for shims and polyfills available online.

With Best Regards,
Kuba
