Showing error message in alert controller

#1

Hi Experts,

I want to display my error message which is part of catch block in alter controller. My catch block is able to catch the error message but i am not able to prompt it to the end user in the form of an alert. Please suggest right way to address this.

Appreciate your help in advance.

Cheers

Code:

catch((error) => {
        let alert = this.alertCtrl.create({
          title: 'error',
          message: reject(error),
          //subTitle: error,
          buttons: [
        {
          text: "Ok",
          handler: data => {
            console.log("Ok Clicked")
          }
        }]
        });
        alert.present();
        reject(error);
      });

First, that reads terribly – you’re setting yourself up for typo hell. Pull the alert out into a separate method, like:

catch( (error) => this.displayErrorAlert(error) )

Second, the message property takes a string. So you need to understand the model of the error you’re handling. Some errors have a code property, so you could just pass that if your error class uses error.code, or if you want a more user-friendly version, you could if-then on the code string, and turn it into a complete non-computer-sounding sentence.

Thanks for the quick revert. I basically want to popup error message without any change so i believe i will have to provide alert controller inside catch block where i will be passing the error code.

I am little new in java script hence my code might look little distorted. Would it be possible for you to share a code snippet which can be used for the requirement.

I won’t provide further code, because I provided some already, and you incorrectly said it wouldn’t work in your situation. My recommendation at this point is that you learn the basics of TypeScript before proceeding. Best wishes.

No. I never said it wouldn’t work in my situation. I was just explaining the issues once again. Never mind. Will follow your advice. Thanks for the revert.

Additionally, the fact that I see calls to reject suggest that you’re explicitly instantiating promises, which you almost certainly don’t really want to be doing.
