JavaScript String with quotes

The strings are usually used to store and manipulate the text data. However, you can also store special characters and numeric data in strings as well. E.g., address or email id, which contains multitype data.

Strings are created by putting data inside the quotes. JavaScript and other programming languages allow the users to keep the data either in double quotes (" ") or single quotes (' '). This chapter will show you how to print string with quotes.

For example

Quotes Example
Single Quote (' ') 'This is a string inside single quotes.'
Double Quote (" ") "This is a string inside double quotes."

These single quotes and double quotes do not print with string on the web browser. But sometimes we need to print the quotes with the string as well. Some words like it's, b'day, seven o'clock, can't, and etc. Firstly, see how a string simply display on the web.

Example: String without quotes

See the simple example of printing the strings without the single and double-quotes.

A string inside double quote

Here, you can see that both strings have been printed without quotes.

Enclosing quotation marks

You can use a backslash (\) with the particular word or string to escape the quotation mark. Remember one thing; if you do not want to use the backslash (\), you have to use the quotation mark alternatively inside and outside of a string. This means that if you try to use a single quote inside a string, the outside quotes should be double quotes. Similarly, if you try to use a double quote inside a string, the outside quotes must be single quotes.

Let's see how it will be done in JavaScript.

JavaScript misunderstand the string if you write it as the below string:

Note: Do not forget to insert a backslash while escaping the quotation mark, especially when outside and inside quotes are the same.

Example: Print quotes using alternative String syntax

In this example, we will use alternative quotation mark inside and outside of a string. This means the same thing can be done with it. See the below example, how it will be done:

Other than all these methods, there is one more way to display the single quote and double quote on the web browser.

Example: Use apostrophe to print single quote
