TypeScript custom Error Handling example

TypeScript Error Handling : Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a TypeScript function that calls a non-existent function. Use a try-catch block to catch the resulting error and display a custom error message.

Sample Solution:

TypeScript Code:

function callNonExistentFunction(): void {
  try {
    // Attempt to call a non-existent function
  } catch (error) {
    console.error("Custom Error: The function does not exist.");

// Call the function


In the exercise above -

  • The "callNonExistentFunction()" function tries to call a non-existent function nonExistentFunction().
  • Inside the try block, the code attempts to call the non-existent function, which will result in a runtime error.
  • If an error occurs, the catch block catches the error, and a custom error message is displayed using console.error.


"Custom Error: The function does not exist."
