WritableStreamDefaultController.error()

Draft

Experimental

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The error() method of the WritableStreamDefaultController interface causes any future interactions with the associated stream to error.

This method is rarely used, since usually it suffices to return a rejected promise from one of the underlying sink’s methods. However, it can be useful for suddenly shutting down a stream in response to an event outside the normal lifecycle of interactions with the underlying sink.

Syntax

writableStreamDefaultController.error(e);

Parameters

e
A DOMString representing the error you want future interactions to fail with.

Return value

undefined.

Exceptions

TypeError
The stream you are trying to error is not a WritableStream.

Examples

const writableStream = new WritableStream({
  start(controller) {
    // do stuff with controller

    // error stream if necessary
    controller.error('My error is broken');
  },
  write(chunk, controller) {
    ...
  },
  close(controller) {
    ...
  },
  abort(err) {
    ...
  }
});
