How to Repeat Strings with JavaScript

Spread the love

There are a few ways to repeat a string in JavaScript. JavaScript strings have a built in repeat() function. You can also use a loop to do the same thing.

String.repeat Function

To use the repeat function, you pass in the number of times you want to repeat the string as an argument. It returns a new string

For example:

const hello = "hello";  
const hello5 = A.repeat(5);  
console.log(hello5); // "hellohellohellohellohello"

Use a loop

You can use for loop and while loop to do repeatedly concatenate strings.

Using a for loop, you can do:

const hello = "hello";  
let hello5 = '';  
for (let i = 1; i <= 5; i++){  
  hello5 += hello;  
}  
console.log(hello5); // "hellohellohellohellohello"

With a while loop, you can do:

const hello = "hello";  
let hello5 = '';  
let i = 1;  
while(i <= 5){  
  hello5 += hello;  
  i++  
}  
console.log(hello5); // "hellohellohellohellohello"

They both involve increment indexes up to the maximum.
