Try it Yourself »

Definition and Usage

The error() method was deprecated in jQuery version 1.8, and removed in version 3.0.

The error event occurs when an element encounters an error (if the element is not loaded correctly).

The error() method triggers the error event, or attaches a function to run when an error event occurs.

Tip: This method is a shortcut for bind('error', handler).


Trigger the error event for the selected elements:

$(selector).error() Try it

Attach a function to the error event:

$(selector).error(function) Try it

Parameter Description
function Optional. Specifies the function to run when the error event occurs
