Still not Working :confused:

var myStr= “FirstLine\n\t\SecondLine\nThirdLine”; // Change this line

Why? Whats wrong with it? :confused:

befor the backslash in the second you have to add another backslash
myStr= “FirstLine\n\t\SecondLine\nThirdLine”;
this will resolve it i think :slight_smile:

Because " is not , they are different characters.

As you copied and pasted some text maybe, you got the open-close double-quote char instead of ASCII double-quote.

Fix is easy, remove those “ in your code(both at start and at the end) and type it by your keyboard (shift + ') and try again.

Check the screenshot @Juba-codeur shared, the string starts with ASCII double quote " , but not yours.

following is wrong (please check the open and close double-quote
var myStr= “FirstLine\n\t\SecondLine\nThirdLine”; // Change this line
it should be
var myStr= "FirstLine\n\t\SecondLine\nThirdLine"; // Change this line
