How to Concatenate Two Strings with New Line in Javascript

In this tutorial, you will learn how to concatenate two strings with new line in javascript . Sometimes, in order to give a word or string significance, it will be necessary to append one or more strings to it. The meaning of the string is also enhanced by adding new line between sentences. For a newbie developer, it can be a bit tricky to concatenate two strings with space.

There are numerous ways to concatenate two strings with new line. But for the sake of simplicity, we will make use of addition operator (+) which helps in concatenating two or more strings.

In the following example, we have two global variables that are holding a string value. Upon click of a button, we will concatenate two strings with new line and display the result on the screen.  Please have a look over the code example and the steps given below.


  • We have 3 elements in the HTML file (divbutton, and h1). The div element is just a wrapper for the rest of the elements.
  • The innerText for the button element is “Add” and for the h1 element, it is “Result”.
  • We have done some basic styling using CSS and added the link to our style.css stylesheet inside the head element.
  • We have also included our javascript file script.js with a script tag at the bottom.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">


  <div class="container">    

  <script src="script.js"></script>

.container {        
    text-align: center;

button {
  margin-top: 10px;
  padding: 10px 20px;


  • We have selected the button element and h1 element using the document.querySelector() method and stored them in btnAdd and output variables respectively.
  • We have two global variables firstName and lastName. They both hold a string as a value.
  • We have attached a click event listener to the button element.
  • In the event handler function, we are concatenating firstName and lastName variables using addition operator (+) .
  • We are storing the final string in the result variable.
  • We are displaying the result in the h1 element using the innerText property.
let btnAdd = document.querySelector("button");
let output = document.querySelector("h1");

let firstName = `Perry`;
let lastName = `Cherry`;
btnAdd.addEventListener("click", () => {  
  let result = firstName + '\n' + lastName;
  output.innerText = result;
