JSError- microsoft jscript runtime error object doesn't support property or method 'addeventlistener'

Apr 22, 2012

In this article I will explain how to solve problem of “microsoft jscript runtime error object doesn't support property or method 'addeventlistener'” during working with click events in JavaScript.


In Previous posts I explained how to integrate facebook login button in during implement that functionality I written functions like this to handle hyperlinks click events in JavaScript

document.getElementById('auth-loginlink').addEventListener('click', function() {
document.getElementById('auth-logoutlink').addEventListener('click', function() {
FB.logout(function() { window.location.reload(); });
After written above event handlers if I run application I got error like “microsoft jscript runtime error object doesn't support property or method 'addeventlistener'”.

After get this error I realized that 'addeventlistener' events working only in firefox not working in IE.

To solve this problem and make hyperlinks click functions will work in all browsers I used JQuery click events for that I added latest JQuery script file in header section of application that is

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
After that I changed click events of hyperlinks to like this

$("#auth-loginlink").click(function() { FB.login(); });
$("#auth-logoutlink").click(function() { FB.logout(function() { window.location.reload(); }); });
After change 'addeventlistener' events to JQuery click events then that works in all browsers. If you want live example check this post how to integrate facebook login button in I hope it helps you to solve your problem.
