HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

This method returns a CanvasGradient object that represents a linear gradient that paints along the line given by the coordinates represented by the arguments. The four arguments represent the starting point (x1,y1) and end point (x2,y2) of the gradient.

createLinearGradient(x0, y0, x1, y1)

Here are the parameter values of the createLinearGradient() method −

S.No
