Module 14: Exceptions and More On Events

CMPS 162: Introduction to Programming


Up to this points all errors were simply printed to the console and not handled properly. JavaScript has built-in functionality to support a better way to deal with problems, which are known as exception handling. Exceptions can be generated by the JavaScript runtime or raised by the programmer using throw. The try and catch construct delineates which exceptions should be caught in which part of the code. We will also have another look at handling events in JavaScript.
