I have developed a lightning component, I am using following JavaScript methods
I am getting following errors

getComputedTextLength is not a function
getTotalLength is not a function
getTotalLength is not a function

While .getBBobx() is working fine.
Note: I am getting those error when locker service enabled

  • Check this out. Also, I suppose getTotalLength() has been deprecated.

LockerService was missing a number of SVG elements and their associated methods/properties. This has been fixed in the Summer '17 major release.

Just make sure the methods are being called on the correct SVG types. getComputedTextLength, for example, should be called on SVGTextContentElement.
