JavaScript TypeError – “X” is not a function
  • Last Updated : 24 Jul, 2020

This JavaScript exception is not a function that occurs if someone trying to call a value from a function, but in reality, the value is not a function.

Message:

TypeError: Object doesn't support property or method {x} (Edge)
TypeError: "x" is not a function

Error Type:

TypeError

Cause of Error: There is an attempt to call a value from a function, but in reality, the value is not a function.  Here the need is to provide a function, but that didn’t happen.

Example 1: In this example, the document.getElementByID is used as a function, which is not. So the error has occurred.



HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Type Error</title>
</head>
<body>
    <script>
    let x = document.getElementByID('GFG');
    document.write(x);
    </script>
</body>
</html>

Output(In Chrome console):

TypeError: document.getElementByID is not a function

Example 2: In this example, the brackets are used as multiply But they are like calling a function. So the error has occurred.

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Type Error</title>
</head>
<body>
    <script>
    const x = 4(4 + 5);
    document.write(x);
    </script>
</body>
</html>

Output(In Chrome console):

TypeError: 4 is not a function
