Hi All,

Here is the div with span

<ul class="tabs visibility-toggle">

<li class="tab"><a href="#" id="cart-toggle"><span> Hide Cart</span></a></li>


I want to change the span text, following is the code am using to change the text.But am running through SCRIPT5007: 'Unable to get value of the property 'update': object is null or undefined ' for following line on IE9

$$('#cart-toggle span')[0].replaceWith('Show Cart');

For other browser its working fine.

My function is here

showChart: function() {


$$('#cart-toggle span')[0].replaceWith('Show Cart'); $('cart-hdr').show(); $('cart-wrapper').show(); Cookie.set("portfolioCartDisplay", "show");


Could you please help me to get it done.
