JavascriptObject Oriented ProgrammingFront End Technology

To deal with “Object doesn’t support this property or method” issue in JavaScript, while using events and Internet Explorer, update your code with this −

Example

<html>
   <head>
      <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge;" />
   </head>
   <body>
   ...
   </body>
</html>

You can also use attachEvent in IE to solve this issue like this −

if (ev.addEventListener) {
   ev.addEventListener('click', myText, false);
}
else if (ev.attachEvent) {
    ev.attachEvent('onclick', myText);
}
