Canvas in HTML5

he HTML <canvas> element is used to draw graphics, on the fly, via JavaScript.

The <canvas> element is only a container for graphics. You must use JavaScript to actually draw the graphics.

Canvas has several methods for drawing paths, boxes, circles, text, and adding images.

<!DOCTYPE html>

<canvas id=”myCanvas” width=”200″ height=”100″ style=”border:1px solid #d3d3d3;”>
Your browser does not support the HTML5 canvas tag.</canvas>

<script>
var c = document.getElementById(“myCanvas”);
var ctx = c.getContext(“2d”);
ctx.moveTo(0,0);
ctx.lineTo(200,100);
ctx.stroke();
</script>
