In this beginning-level course you will learn and practice new string-handling skills using Notepad++ to write JavaScript code and the Chrome browser to view your results. Since text data is commonly used as a “string” in JavaScript, the ability to use and manipulate strings is a key component in JavaScript programming. You will learn some of the properties and methods that make string handling easier. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Write JavaScript code to declare a variable with a string data type, and then assign a value to that variable.

  2. Practice formatting strings with additional spacing and using the plus sign as a concatenation symbol.

  3. Code the JavaScript statement to determine how many characters are in a string of data using the .length property.

  4. Use the .toUpperCase() method to convert a string to upper case characters.

  5. Use the concat() and trim() methods to concatenate two strings together or eliminate part of a string.

  6. Write the JavaScript code to extract a small string of characters from a larger string using the slice() method.
