HTML Canvas Gradients


Canvas - Gradients

Gradients can be used to fill rectangles, circles, lines, text, etc. Shapes on the canvas are not limited to solid colors.

There are two different types of gradients:

  • createLinearGradient(x,y,x1,y1) - creates a linear gradient
  • createRadialGradient(x,y,r,x1,y1,r1) - creates a radial/circular gradient

Once we have a gradient object, we must add two or more color stops.

The addColorStop() method specifies the color stops, and its position along the gradient. Gradient positions can be anywhere between 0 to 1.

To use the gradient, set the fillStyle or strokeStyle property to the gradient, then draw the shape (rectangle, text, or a line).


Using createLinearGradient()

Example

Create a linear gradient. Fill rectangle with the gradient:

Your browser does not support the HTML5 canvas tag.

JavaScript:

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

// Create gradient
var grd=ctx.createLinearGradient(0,0,200,0);
grd.addColorStop(0,"red");
grd.addColorStop(1,"white");

// Fill with gradient
ctx.fillStyle=grd;
ctx.fillRect(10,10,150,80);

Using createRadialGradient():

Example

Create a radial/circular gradient. Fill rectangle with the gradient:

Your browser does not support the HTML5 canvas tag.

JavaScript:

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

// Create gradient
var grd=ctx.createRadialGradient(75,50,5,90,60,100);
grd.addColorStop(0,"red");
grd.addColorStop(1,"white");

// Fill with gradient
ctx.fillStyle = grd;
ctx.fillRect(10,10,150,80);
