Because of the wonky formatting of your posted code (is that really how you write your code?) I can't tell what's going on. it looks like your alert is outside any conditional that checks the error code, so it should display always. If not, then you're not getting to that block of code at all.

You need to set the response status to something else other than 200 incase of an error.


That should work in your case.
PS: your code formatting is still awfully wonky. Bugs resulting from lack of proper indentation can give you awful nightmares in the future.

Since you insist, let me try highlighting the issue with your indentation.
This is how your code appears to be:
----------------------------------------

A much better way of writing the code above would be:
-----------------------------


Now you might argue that there's not much to it, in which case, I guess there's nothing much to say. Putting in a little bit of effort to structure your code not only helps you minimise errors, but also helps those who try and go through the code to help you fix an error.
