Apply line break in a loop in js

I want to apply line break in a loop in javascript.

I have tried to used <br>, <br/> and \n from different answers of solving this problem.

However, none of them work.

Here is an example:

let arr = [1,2,3,4,5,6]
let result = document.querySelector('p')
for(let i = 0;i<arr.length;i++){
  result.textContent += arr[i]+"<br>"
result.textContent += arr[i]+"<br/>"
result.textContent += arr[i]+"\n"

The <br>, <br/> will appear in the textContent and doesn’t apply the line break.

The \n doesn’t appear in the textContent, but doesn’t apply the line break.

Do anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thanks for any responds.

>Solution :



\n will add a new line, but since html is whitepsace agnostic, it won’t show up by default inside of a <p> tag. If you want to add line breaks, you can use <br/> instead

Demo in Stack Snippets

document.getElementById('1').textContent = "<br/>".repeat(6)
document.getElementById('2').innerHTML = "<br/>".repeat(6)
p {
  border: 1px solid black;
<h2>Set <code>textContent</code></h2>
<p id="1"></p>

<h2>Set <code>innerHTML</code></h2>
<p id="2"></p>
