Below examples illustrate the Generator.prototype.throw() method are listed below:
Example 1: 
 



javascript




<script>
function* GFG() {
  while(true) {
    try {
       yield "Null";
    } catch(e) {
      console.log('Generator.prototype.throw()');
    }
  }
}
 
const geeks = GFG();
console.log(geeks.next());
console.log(geeks.throw(new Error('Error caught!')));      
</script>  

Output: 
 

Object { value: "Null", done: false }
"Generator.prototype.throw()"
Object { value: "Null", done: false }

Example 2: 
 

javascript




<script>
function* GFG(pageSize = 1, list) {
    let output = [];
    let index = 0;
 
    while (index < list.length) {
      try {
        output = [];
        for (let i = index; i < index + pageSize; i++) {
            if (list[i]) {
                output.push(list[i]);
            }
        }
 
        yield output;
        index += pageSize;
      } catch(e) {
      console.log('Generator.prototype.throw()');
    }
    }
}
list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]
var geek = GFG(3, list);             
 
console.log(geek.next());     
console.log(geek.next());     
console.log(geek.next());
console.log(geek.throw(new Error('Error caught!')));
</script>

Output: 
 

Object { value: Array [1, 2, 3], done: false }
Object { value: Array [4, 5, 6], done: false }
Object { value: Array [7, 8], done: false }
"Generator.prototype.throw()"
Object { value: Array [7, 8], done: false }
