I am comparing two date time fields in Apex.If start date and time is greater than end date,I have to display error in salesforceLightning component.

 Datetime EventStartDate= datetime.valueOf(stringdate1);
 Datetime EventEndDate= datetime.valueOf(stringdate2);

 if(EventStartDate< EventEndDate){    
     //How to throw this error to javascript side

How to display error message in javascript side based on server side error.

On the server, use the AuraHandledException:

if(EventStartDate > EventEndDate) {
  throw new AuraHandledException('End date must be after start date');

You can then detect this situation in your controller's callback:

if(response.getState() === "ERROR") {
  // show the message with a toast or other mechanism

I think you can throw error in apex using

throw new AuraHandledException('');

Hope it will help!
