Python ValueError exception

  • by

Python ValueError exception is raised when a user gives an invalid value to a function but is of a valid argument. It mostly occurs in mathematical operations that will require a certain kind of value.

Python ValueError exception examples

Handling ValueError Exception
Use the try-except block to handle the ValueError exception. The lines of code that can throw the ValueError should be placed in the try block, and the except block can catch and handle the error.

import math

x = -100
except ValueError:
print(f'You entered {x}, which is not a positive number.')

Output: You entered -100, which is not a positive number.
