try, catch, and throw Statements tutorials

  • The try statement lets you test a block of JavaScript code for errors.

  • The catch statement lets you handle a JavaScript error.

  • The throw statement lets you create custom errors.

  • These statements work together to give you advanced control over any errors and exceptions that may arise in your code.

  • The try statement and the catch statement work together to support exception handling.





statements(s) where exception may be thrown


catch (err)


statement(s) that handle the exception


  • The try statement surrounds the statements for which exception handling is to be performed. It is immediately followed by a catch statement that performs the exception handling. The errorVariable is used to reference any exception that occurs. It is assigned an instance of the error object. If an exception is thrown during the processing of the statements contained within the try statement, then errorVariable is assigned an error object that identifies the exception, and control immediately is transfers to the statements contained within the catch statement. If no exception is thrown during the processing of the statements contained within the try statement, then the catch statement is skipped and control transfers to the statement following the catch statement.

  • The throw statement is used to throw an exception.

throw expression

the value of the expression is used to the identify the type of error that occurred. For example, the following statement throws an exception named BadInputFromUser.

throw "BadInputFromUser"


Example: Program to demonstrate JavaScript try and catch statement
Example: JavaScript Example an exception handling using the try & catch statement.

Testing 0: It's out of range.

Testing 1: It's prime.

Testing 2: It's prime.

Testing 3: It's prime.

Testing 4: It's divisible by2.

Testing 5: It's prime.

Testing 6: It's divisible by2.

Testing 7: It's prime.

Testing 8: It's divisible by2.

Testing 9: It's divisible by3.

Testing 10: It's divisible by2.

Testing 11: It's out of range.


  • From the above example, the for statement iterates I between 2 and n. if n modulus I is zero, then n is not prime, the itís divisible by exception is thrown, and control passes to the catch statement. Otherwise, Itís prime is written to the document window and the function returns.

  • The catch statement simply writes the exception to the document window. The output that is displayed by primeTest() as the result of the scriptís processing.

  • The writeln() method is identical to the write() method, with the addition of writing a newline character after each statement.


Example: JavaScript example of an exception handling using the try catch and throw statement.


  • From the above example, determines the value of a variable called x. If the value of x is higher than 10 or lower than 0 we are going to throw an error. The error is then caught by the catch argument and the proper error message is displayed.
