HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The HTML5 <canvas> tag is used to draw graphics, animations, etc. using scripting. It is a new tag introduced in HTML5. The canvas element has a DOM method called getContext, which obtains rendering context and its drawing functions. This function takes one parameter, the type of context 2d.

To draw a Quadratic curve with HTML5 canvas, use the quadraticCurveTo() method. This method adds the given point to the current path, connected to the previous one by a quadratic Bezier curve with the given control point.

You can try to run the following code to learn how to draw a quadratic curve on HTML5 Canvas. The x and y parameters in quadraticCurveTo() method are the coordinates of the endpoint. cpx and cpy are the coordinates of the control point.

         ctx.quadraticCurveTo(50,120,30,125);
         ctx.quadraticCurveTo(60,120,65,100);
         ctx.quadraticCurveTo(125,100,125,62.5);
         ctx.quadraticCurveTo(125,25,75,25);
         ctx.stroke();
