HTML canvas rect() Method

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The rect() method of the HTML canvas is used to create a rectangle. The <canvas> element allows you to draw graphics on a web page using JavaScript. Every canvas has two elements that describes the height and width of the canvas i.e. height and width respectively.

Following is the syntax −

context.fillRect(p,q,width,height);

Above,

  • p: The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle
  • q: The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle
  • width: Width of the rectangle
  • height: Height of the rectangle

Let us now see an example to implement the rect() method of canvas −

   ctx.beginPath();
   ctx.rect(100, 60, 200, 200);
   ctx.fillStyle = "orange";
