This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The DOMMatrix constructor creates a new DOMMatrix object which represents 4x4 matrices, suitable for 2D and 3D operations..


var domMatrix = new DOMMatrix([init])


init Optional
Either a string containing a sequence of numbers or an array of integers specifying the matrix you want to create.


This example creates a DOMMatrix to use as an argument for calling Point.matrixTransform().

var point = new DOMPoint(5, 4);
var matrix = new DOMMatrix([2, 0, 0, 2, 10, 10]);
var transformedPoint = point.matrixTransform(matrix);
