HTML <area> coords Attribute

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The cords attribute of the <area> element is used to set the coordinates of area in image map. Use the attribute with shape attribute and set the size & shape of an area.

Following is the syntax

<area coords="value">

Under the value above, you can set the following coordinates with different parameters −

x1,y1,x2,y2Coordinates of the top-left and bottom-right corner of the rectangle (shape="rect")
x,y,radiusCoordinates of the circle center and the radius (shape="circle")
x1,y1,x2,y2,..,xn,ynCoordinates of the edges of the polygon.

Let us now see an example to implement the cords attribute of the <area> element −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<h2>Learning</h2>
<p>Learn these technologies with ease....</p>
<img src = /images/usemap.gif alt = "usemap" border = "0" usemap = "#tutorials"/>
<map name = "tutorials">
   <area shape = "poly" coords = "74,0,113,29,98,72,52,72,38,27"
      href = "/perl/index.htm" alt = "Perl Tutorial" target = "_blank" />
   <area shape = "rect" coords = "22,83,126,125" alt = "HTML Tutorial"
      href = "/html/index.htm" target = "_blank" />
   <area shape = "circle" coords = "73,168,32" alt = "PHP Tutorial"
      href = "/php/index.htm" target = "_blank" />
</map>
</body>
</html>

Output

In the above example, we have set the map on the following image −

<img src = /images/usemap.gif alt = "usemap" border = "0" usemap = "#tutorials"/>

Now, we have set the map and area within it for shape −

<map name = "tutorials">
   <area shape = "poly" coords = "74,0,113,29,98,72,52,72,38,27"
      href = "/perl/index.htm" alt = "Perl Tutorial" target = "_blank" />
   <area shape = "rect" coords = "22,83,126,125" alt = "HTML Tutorial"
      href = "/html/index.htm" target = "_blank" />
   <area shape = "circle" coords = "73,168,32" alt = "PHP Tutorial"
      href = "/php/index.htm" target = "_blank" />
</map>

While setting the area, we have set the coordinates of the area with the cords attribute −

<area shape = "rect" coords = "22,83,126,125" alt = "HTML Tutorial"
   href = "/html/index.htm" target = "_blank" />
