I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.

You have a semicolon in the middle of your statement.

i thought the semicolon after var myStr; is supposed to stay there if that’s the semicolon you were referring to. i tried deleting the semicolon after var myStr; and still didnt work. other than then that i cant figure this one out

If you want to assign a value to a variable, how do you do that?
