Escape Sequences in Strings Not Working

Tell us what’s happening:
I’ve read all the hints and watched the video on YouTube, but it still does not work though it looks correct.

Your code so far

var myStr;//"FirstLine\n\\SecondLine\\\rThirdLine";

Link to the challenge:

Assign the following three lines of text into the single variable myStr using escape sequences.

The key word here is assign. How do you assign a value to a variable?

Your current code declares myStr and that is it. On the same line of the declaration, you have the following commented code:


Remember the // on a line makes everything after it a comment.

Thank you. When I used the = sign it assigned the value. Now it works.
