I get a error from Typescript and I am not sure how to correct it. The code works fine when "compiled" but I can't correct the error. I have extracted the parts that involve the error from my code. I guess I have to predifine the src but not sure how.
Error msg in Editor and on Gulp compile:
"Property 'src' does not exist on type 'HTMLElement'.at line 53 col 17"
element:HTMLElement; /* Defining element */
this.element = document.createElement('img'); /*creating a img*/
this.element.src = this.file; /*This is the line that gives the error*/
this.element.style.position = "absolute";
this.element.style.top = this.pointX.toString() + "px";
this.element.style.left = this.pointY.toString() + "px";
src is not a property of the
HTMLElement type, but of
If you are certain you'll get an img element, you might want to declare your variable with the correct subtype:
element: HTMLImageElement; /* Defining element */ // ... this.element = document.createElement('img'); /*creating a img*/
Also, you might want to have a look at what
document.createElement returns. It's the very same type if you specify
"img" as its argument.
