I've created a layout page, when I run the page and look at the JavaScript console, I get a 'parentElement' null error message like this:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'parentElement' of null 

There is no other error message, when I compare this to the other layout pages (which I haven't created) this error message is not displayed.

Does anyone know what causes this error message and what I could be possibly be missing in my layout page.

Thanks

Stephen

Can you provide more info? How do you get the element in your javascript code? –  Anatoly Mironov Jan 29 '13 at 10:22
    
Hi,Yes the error message is thrown by a JS file called sp.ui.Rte.js (I file that I have not created). The my page is just a standard Layout page, but I am missing something that this JS is looking for that is causing the error, not sure what I am missing. –  stevo Jan 29 '13 at 10:42
    
Okay, I see. You don't have any custom js code? I have seen this in the standard pages. –  Anatoly Mironov Jan 29 '13 at 10:58
    
Yep, it seems a standard message, not from my JS –  stevo Jan 29 '13 at 11:11
    
Is the error occuring in all browsers? –  Anatoly Mironov Jan 29 '13 at 12:44
