' null ' is null or not an object error on javascript

Hi
I am getting an error in IE 7 only and it doesnt move.  It works in Firefox.

It's complaining about this line:

var myTicker = new Ticker('newsticker',{toggleButton:'toggle'});

Can anyone offer any advice on a solution please?
I have this code in my HEAD :
 
<script type="text/javascript" src="mootools.v1.11.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="mooticker.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
    // Create ticker at domready state
    window.addEvent('domready',function() {
      var myTicker = new Ticker('newsticker',{toggleButton:'toggle'});
    });
  </script>
 
 
 
 
and this code in my BODY:
 
<div id="newsSubContainer">
  <div id="newsticker">
    <ul>
      <li>TEST 1</li>
      <li>TEST 2</li>
      <li>TEST 3</li>
      <li>TEST 4</li>
    </ul>
  </div>
  <div id="toggle"></div>
</div>
 
 
 
 
Here is the code from mooticker.js if it may help:

Hi,

you must define the interval, something like:

var myTicker = new Ticker('newsticker',{toggleButton:'toggle', interval: 5000});

Hi,

maybe a problem then with your mootools.v1.11.js you must have inside your mootools.js that you can take from (http://mootools.net/download/) the following components as your mooticker.js explain:

Core: Core
Class: Class, Class.Extras
Native: Array, String, Function, Number, Element
Element: Element.Event, Element.Filters, Element.Selectors
Window: Window.DomReady
Effects: Fx.Base, Fx.CSS, Fx.Style

the code Snippet is the mootools-release-1.11.js that was generated from (http://mootools.net/download/) and have all components need by mooticker.js.

the attached text file contains the html file that i tested with your mooticker.js and with mootools-release-1.11.js generated.

	An "Utility" Class. Its methods can be implemented with <Class.implement> into any <Class>.

		*forEach* executes the provided function (callback) once for each element present in the array. callback is invoked only for indexes of the array which have assigned values; it is not invoked for indexes which have been deleted or which have never been assigned values.
 
	Arguments:
		fn - function to execute with each item in the array; passed the item and the index of that item in the array
		bind - the object to bind "this" to (see <Function.bind>)
 
	Example:

		*every* executes the provided callback function once for each element present in the array until it finds one where callback returns a false value. If such an element is found, the every method immediately returns false.

Hi,

ok, my version is same, but now i can get the error on a IE7 running on Windows XP, note that with the sample the error dont occurs.

well checking the site i can view that the error is exactly at initialize function of the Ticker class (from mooticker.js) on line 42, see the code snippet to locate better, please note that IE7 shows "line 43, 'null' is null or not an object" but this isnt, the line with problem is 42, the formula is the line that IE7 show minus one. (i dont know because what, maybe a BUG on IE7 or specification)

to understand better i copy the line 42 here:
this.messages = $(this.container).getElements('li');

here the $(this.container) is null, that is initialized at line 37, then your div newsticker dont exist on document at this time, first of all, make sure that your html is correct, to check:

1. put the attribute onload="documentLoaded()" on the body elment
2. inside javascript tag create the function:
function documentLoaded() {
    alert("div with id newsticker exists? "+(document.getElementById("newsticker") != null));
}

if you get an alert with message "div with id newsticker exists? false" then:
your html is malformed you must correct and try again.

if you get an alert with message "div with id newsticker exists? true" and the error persist then:
the event domready executes before IE7 creates the div,  you can put the creation of new Ticker inside the documentLoaded this solve your problem.
