Set Canvas size using javascript

Posted by: admin November 29, 2017 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have the following code in html:

<canvas  id="myCanvas" width =800 height=800>

I want, instead of specifying the width as 800, to call the JavaScript function getWidth() to get the width e.g.

 <canvas  id="myCanvas" width =getWidth() height=800>

What is the correct syntax to do it? Because what I’m doing doesn’t work.

Answers:

You can set the width like this :

function draw() {
  var ctx = (a canvas context);
  ctx.canvas.width  = window.innerWidth;
  ctx.canvas.height = window.innerHeight;
  //...drawing code...
}

Try this:

var w = window,
d = document,
e = d.documentElement,
g = d.getElementsByTagName('body')[0],
xS = w.innerWidth || e.clientWidth || g.clientWidth,
yS = w.innerHeight|| e.clientHeight|| g.clientHeight;
alert(xS + ' × ' + yS);

document.write(”)

works for iframe and well.

You can also use this script , just change the height and width

<canvas id="Canvas01" width="500" height="400" style="border:2px solid #FF9933; margin-left:10px; margin-top:10px;"></canvas>

   <script>
      var canvas = document.getElementById("Canvas01");
      var ctx = canvas.getContext("2d");
