String Concatenation

When working with JavaScript strings sometimes you need to join two or more strings together in to a single string. Joining multiple strings together is known as concatenation.

The concatenation operator

The concatenation operator (+) concatenates two or more string values together and return another string which is the union of the two operand strings.

The shorthand assignment operator += can also be used to concatenate strings.

Example :

The following web document demonstrates the use of concatenation operator (+) and shorthand assignment operator +=.
