MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

<canvas>HTML5 的新元素,可透過 Script(通常是 JavaScript)繪製圖形。例如,可以用來繪圖、合成圖照片、建立動畫、甚至處理即時的影片播放。

Mozilla 應用程式從 Gecko 1.8(也就是 Firefox 1.5)起開始支援 <canvas>。這個元素最初由蘋果 OS X Dashboard 和 Safari 引入。Internet Explorer 9 以上版本也有支援 <canvas>,但較舊的 IE 版本則須嵌入 Google Explorer Canvas 專案中的程式腳本,才能得到有效的支援。Opera 9 也支援 <canvas>

<canvas> 元素通常也被 WebGL 用來在網頁上顯示使用硬體加速繪製的 3D 圖形。


This is just a simple code snippet which uses the CanvasRenderingContext2D.fillRect() method.


<canvas id="canvas"></canvas>


var canvas = document.getElementById("canvas");
var ctx = canvas.getContext("2d");

ctx.fillStyle = "green";
ctx.fillRect(10, 10, 100, 100);

Edit the code below and see your changes update live in the canvas:


The interfaces related to the WebGLRenderingContext are referenced under WebGL.
