if (!Array.prototype.indexOf) {
Array.prototype.indexOf = function (searchElement, fromIndex) {
if ( this === undefined || this === null ) {
throw new TypeError( '"this" is null or not defined' );
}
var length = this.length >>> 0; // Hack to convert object.length to a UInt32
fromIndex = +fromIndex || 0;
if (Math.abs(fromIndex) === Infinity) {
fromIndex = 0;
}
if (fromIndex < 0) {
fromIndex += length;

fromIndex = 0;
}
}
for (;fromIndex < length; fromIndex++) {
if (this[fromIndex] === searchElement) {
return fromIndex;
}
}

};
