I'm loading splitText and this happens:

 

Uncaught TypeError: Failed to execute 'getComputedStyle' on 'Window': parameter 1 is not of type 'Element'.  SplitText.min.js:13

 

Please help.

 

 

EDIT: in firefox:

 

TypeError: Argument 1 of Window.getComputedStyle does not implement interface Element.
Line 13

Hm, could you provide at least a simple codepen or something so that we can see what you're doing with your code? It almost sounds like you're trying to call SplitText on the window itself which would be weird. Very difficult to troubleshoot blind, though. We'd be happy to help - just not sure where to go with that limited information and no context.

It's when loaded.

 

look my console:

 

LOADED: js/jquery-1.10.2.min.js
LOADED: js/prefixfree.min.js
LOADED: js/gsmin/TweenMax.min.js
LOADED: js/gsmin/utils/SplitText.min.js
SplitText.js:135 Uncaught TypeError: Failed to execute 'getComputedStyle' on 'Window': parameter 1 is not of type 'Element'._split @ SplitText.js:135p.split @ SplitText.js:382pkg.SplitText._globals.SplitText @ SplitText.js:105(anonymous function) @ main.js:6
LOADED: js/main.js
 
Before anything. I don't call any function (main.js is empty at the moment)

It will still be hard to help you with out some live code for context. Since it could be a number of things causing this. We would need a reduced codepen example to better help you!

 

Here is a nice video tut by GreenSock on how to create a codepen demo example

Taking a stab in the dark here, but it seems curious that it appears that you are loading SplitText.min.js but the error is coming from SplitText.js.

 

Again, with out some sort of demo that allows us to see this error for ourselves, there is very little we can do.

Hi, guys. I "fix" this: I only put a div and and h1 on it. Apparently if the body is empty, SplitText fails. Weird.

Thanks guys for your concern.
