The URIError() constructor creates an error when a global URI handling function was used in a wrong way.


new URIError()
new URIError(message)
new URIError(message, options)
new URIError(message, fileName)
new URIError(message, fileName, lineNumber)

URIError(message, options)
URIError(message, fileName)
URIError(message, fileName, lineNumber)

Note: URIError() can be called with or without new. Both create a new URIError instance.

    • : Human-readable description of the error.
  • options optional

      • cause optional
