Hi,
we have some trouble with the new IE9.
Our scripts are filled with methods like getSVGDocument() oder getStyle(), for example:

Node.item(i).getStyle().setProperty("visibility","hidden");
svgdoc = document.myName.getSVGDocument();

The Browser throw the error "unknown name" for this methods. Has anybody a workaround for this?

Thank you in advance.

OK, another try:

function incrementGuillotineLevel(Obergrenze)
{
    UnHighlight_Streifen();
    ShowKlemmer(0,0);
    var Untergrenze = 1;
    var Value = document.forms["Interaktiv"].elements["Guillotine"].value;
    var svgdoc = document.Guillupanddown.getSVGDocument();
    var up = svgdoc.getElementById('upGuil');
    var down = svgdoc.getElementById('downGuil');
    if (Value > Obergrenze)
    {
        Value = Obergrenze;
        up.getStyle().setProperty('visibility', 'hidden');
    }
    if (Value < Untergrenze)
    {
        Value = Untergrenze;
        down.getStyle().setProperty('visibility', 'hidden');
    }
    else
    {
        if (Value != Obergrenze)
        {
            Value++;
            if (Value == Obergrenze)
            {
                up.getStyle().setProperty('visibility', 'hidden');
            }
            if (Value > Untergrenze)
            {
                down.getStyle().setProperty('visibility', 'show');
            }
        }
    }
    document.forms["Interaktiv"].elements["Guillotine"].value = Value;
    showPrimStripes(Value);

    var svgdoc2 = document.upanddown.getSVGDocument();
    var up2 = svgdoc2.getElementById('upZyklus');
    var down2 = svgdoc2.getElementById('downZyklus');
    down2.getStyle().setProperty('visibility', 'hidden');
    document.forms["Interaktiv"].elements["Zyklus"].value = 0;
    document.forms["Interaktiv"].elements["SubZyklus"].value = 0;
    if (MaxZyklus > 0)
    {
        up2.getStyle().setProperty('visibility', 'show');
    }
    else
    {
        up2.getStyle().setProperty('visibility', 'hidden');
    }
    return;
}

I'm using getSVGDocument() 44 times in the script-file, and getStyle() 93 times.

getSVGDocument only works in the IE9 document mode, and only on an embedded element.

E.g. what is the markup around upanddown?

instead of getStyle, try just .style.

Thank your for your answer and solution!
I have found the entered IE7 document mode in the developer tool of the IE9 last week. Since then I'm using the meta-tag <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9" > (We will deliver the IE9 shared with our MFC software). So i can using getSVGDocument for the svg via object-tag now, when i define "application/xhtml+xml" as MIME-Type.
Other svg elements, like "upanddown", i have using now inline in the html document, so i can access direct via getElementByID("upanddown").

.style instead of getStyle is working perfectly.

The script is working with the IE9 now, but it was a hard time. I look forward to the new IE...

Now i have another problem...
When the embed svg-file is located on a network-drive, the IE9 is throwing many script-errors, like "access denied". Where is the one checkbox in the IE settings i have to click? :-(
