JavaScript Throw Statement

JavaScript Throw Statement

The throw statement generates an error condition that can be handled by a try…catch statement. The throw statement allows you to create an exception. The throw statement allows you to create an exception. If you use this statement together with the try…catch statement, you can control program flow and generate accurate error messages.

Syntax

throw exception

The exception can be a string, integer, Boolean or an object.

Note that throw is written in lowercase letters. Using uppercase letters will generate a JavaScript error!

Example

The example below determines the value of a variable called x. If the value of x is higher than 10, lower than 0, or not a number, we are going to throw an error. The error is then caught by the catch argument and the proper error message is displayed:

<html>
<body>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
var x=prompt(“Enter a number between 0 and 10:”,””);
try
{
if(x>10)
{
throw “Err1”;
}
else if(x<0)
{
throw “Err2”;
}
else if(isNaN(x))
{
throw “Err3″;
}
}
catch(er)
{
if(er==”Err1”)
{
alert(“Error! The value is too high”);
}
if(er==”Err2″)
{
alert(“Error! The value is too low”);
}
if(er==”Err3″)
{
alert(“Error! The value is not a number”);
}
}
</script>
</body>
</html>
