24. Core JavaScript Reference > Error.name: the type of an error

Name

Error.name: the type of an error — ECMAScript v3

Synopsis

error.name

Description

The name property of an Error object (or of an instance of any subclass of Error) specifies the type of error or exception that occurred. All Error objects inherit this property from their constructor. The value of the property is the same as the name of the constructor. Thus SyntaxError objects have a name property of “SyntaxError”, and EvalError objects have a name of “EvalError”.
