How do you break up long lines of JS code?

If you have an extremely long line of JS code, e.g.,

document.forms[0].required.value=('CndnFBFirstName:FB Frst Name required,CndnFBLastName:FB Lst Name reqyuired,CndnFBRel:FB Relationship required');

(this is on one continous line, not broken up as above), how do you "break" it into several lines...tried just a simple Return to get to a new line but the program will then not run so this isn't the solution! Rats !As the site and its choices develop, this line is going to grow a bunch.

Thanks,
Ron

Try putting an escape character \ after every line that you want to break i.e. something like below,

var stringVar = "I am a string that \
extends \
beyond a single line";

Yes. Yesterday in my dilema of executing multiple JS routines on an event trigger...remember we discovered that the second ";" in calling two routines from an event was unecessary...originally I had:

onClick="CcolorB3();SetReqFieldsBiii();"

and was corrected to be:

onClick="CcolorB3();SetReqFieldsBiii()"

which did the trick...as an aside, I landed up abandoning the 2 event trigger! (hey, at least I learned something)...opted instead for an onkeyup event for the 2nd to set required fields data set for a form...depending on the options of the form selected, required fields change...
