Adding a new line in MatDialog Content Angular 7

I am using MatDialog and trying to add a new line in the content definition. Both n and </b> are not doing it. Is there another way without having to manually go into the html and change it since it’s a reusable component:

var status: MatDialogRef<GenericDialogComponent> this.dialog.open(GenericDialogComponent,{
     width: '400px',
    data: {title: "Sample Title?", content: "Document " + this.docID + " has been saved. The users email address is provied below:nn"+this.email+"</b>"} });

HTML

<h1 mat-dialog-title>{{data.title}}</h1>
<div mat-dialog-content>
  <p>{{data.content}}</p>
</div>
<div mat-dialog-actions>
  <button mat-button (click)="Cancel()">Cancel</button>
  <button mat-button (click)="Ok()" cdkFocusInitial>Ok</button>
</div>

Answer

You can use the [innerHTML] property:

<p [innerHTML]="data.content"></p>

and instead of nn, use the html br tag.

const status: MatDialogRef<GenericDialogComponent> this.dialog.open(GenericDialogComponent,{
     width: '400px',
    data: {title: "Sample Title?", content: `Document ${this.docID} has been saved. The users email address is provied below:<br /><b>${this.email+}</b>`} });
