Elements – Canvas Tag


Canvas Tag

You can use a canvas to draw and animate graphics and text. The drawings are done with JavaScript, so you will want to have an id in order to select the canvas.

<canvas id="canvas" width="200px" height="200px"> </canvas>

Once you’ve made your canvas, you need to find it and make a drawing object.

// Find canvas var canvas = document.getElementById("canvas"); // Make drawing object var drawOnCanvas = canvas.getContext("2d"); // Draw a rectangle on the canvas! drawOnCanvas.fillRect(50, 50, 150, 100);

Now you can use this drawing object to draw on your canvas. There are several methods and attributes you can use for your drawing, including rect(), fillStyle, and many more.
