Javascript coded table not showing on IE 11

Post by LANorth » Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:57 pm

I have a joomla site that does not have any additional extensions or plugins etc other than those created when joomla was loaded onto my domain. I have used some JavaScript code within an article enclosed in <script>…..</script> tags to create a table and head using the code below and with the default editor set to "None".

My script works perfectly when viewed on Ipad, Android and windows Edge but only shows direct php coded content on windows explorer 11.

I have tried both Beez3 and protostar templates.

I have looked at all the options I can find, including setting my site on IE 11 Compatibility View Settings.

Nothing works.

Please help with some ideas to solve this.


***myInfo is for example only***

let myInfo = [
{ name: "Name 1", height: Height 1, place: "Place 1" },
{ name: "Name 2", height: Height 2, place: "Place 3" },
{ name: "Name 3", height: Height 3, place: "Place 3" },
{ name: "Name 4", height: Height 4, place: "Place 4" }

function generateTableHead(table, data) {
let thead = table.createTHead();
let row = thead.insertRow();
for (let key of data) {
let th = document.createElement("th");
let text = document.createTextNode(key);

function generateTable(table, data) {
for (let element of data) {
let row = table.insertRow();
for (key in element) {
let cell = row.insertCell();
let text = document.createTextNode(element[key]);
let table = document.querySelector("table");
let data = Object.keys(myInfo[0]);
generateTableHead(table, data);
generateTable(table, myInfo);

Hard to tell.. but when in IE11.. hit F12 then choose TAB console and see the error messages for hints...
