How to Concatenate Variables with JavaScript

Sep 30, 2013

Here are the facts for the StoryLine project I am working on:

1) I have several variables that store a text value based on user actions.

       a) System

     +b) Region

     =c) System_Region

2) I want to set an additional variable that would be a concatenation of the other variable text strings.

& 3) I have very limited experience/knowledge of JavaScript.

Can anyone help?

So if you wanted to draw out 2 variables and pass the combination of those back into Storyline, here's one way to do that:

var player=GetPlayer();

var _region=player.GetVar("Region");

var _system=player.GetVar("System");


This will pass the value of your region and system variables back into a Storyline variable. I added a dash in between. You could take this out if it's not necessary, provided your variables are strings.

Does anyone know of a way to create a list in javascript that formats the text like ul and li. I have my javascript concatenating and building a bulleted list; but the bullet text is long and does not align with the first line of text.

-     This is an example of what I'd like the text to look like on my page. This is an
