HTML canvas strokeRect() Method

The strokeRect() method of the HTML canvas is used to create a rectangle on a web page. 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 −



  • 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 strokeStyle property of canvas −

   ctx.strokeRect(120, 120, 220, 120);
