Failed to execute 'getComputedStyle' on 'Window': parameter 1 is not of type 'Element

Hello Everyone,

On my mobile app i am getting an Error on every page which says "Failed to execute 'getComputedStyle' on 'Window': parameter 1 is not of type 'Element'." , Can anyone help me out what is this error and how can i get rid of it.

Thanks ,


Hi Nitesh,

What you have provided is not enough information to even begin to help you.  At the very least, you should include your platform version, service studio version, and the full error message from the error log.  Ideally, you would share a sample application (or the real one) where the error can be recreated.


I am having the same issue, my code is right below, everything looks good, but I can't proceed more than this, its on javascript

Hello Team,

Any solution on above error ???

bcz today  I'm getting same error .


Failed to execute 'getComputedStyle' on 'Window': parameter 1 is not of type 'Element'. TypeError: Failed to execute 'getComputedStyle' on 'Window': parameter 1 is not of type 'Element'

Hi everyone. I was getting the same error on one of my popup screens, I just rebuilt the same popup screen and it's working fine. 

I only rebuilt it because it wasn't a lot of work and I was trying to recreate the error, but it just worked the second time around. Hope this will help someone

Best regards!

I got the same error. In my case was because a list had the "Animate Items" set as "Yes". Once i changed to "No" i no longer have the error. Hope it helps
