On components with multiple pages having a calendar icon, the following error occurs when the user navigates from one page in the component with a calendar to another page with a calendar:

Function 'onReadyState' Error: document.getElementById(...) is null

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log In to PIA.
  2. Navigate to Set Up SACR > Foundation tables > Term Setup > Academic Calendar (same issue has also been replicated in: Term/ Session table, Student Program Plan, Create/Update Prospects).
  3. Find an academic calendar and select it.
  4. On Page Term Calendar 2, click on any of the Calendar icons.
  5. Without closing the Calendar, navigate to another page of the component which also has calendar icons on it (e.g.: Term Calendar 3). Note that the reported error is triggered. After closing the error window, the wheel keeps spinning and the user can no longer navigate through the pages of the component.
