Such an event is sent when the associated identity provider (IdP) encounters an error while validating an identity assertion.


peerconnection.onidpvalidationerror = function;


  • function is the name of a user-defined function, without the () suffix or any parameters, or an anonymous function declaration, such as function(event) {...}. An event handler always has one single parameter, containing the event, here of type RTCIdentityErrorEvent.


pc.onidpvalidationerror = function(ev) { alert("onidpvalidationerror event detected!"); };
