HTML Canvas Text


Drawing Text on the Canvas

To draw text on a canvas, the most important property and methods are:

  • font - defines the font properties for the text
  • fillText(text,x,y) - draws "filled" text on the canvas
  • strokeText(text,x,y) - draws text on the canvas (no fill)

Using fillText()

Example

Set font to 30px "Arial" and write a filled text on the canvas:

JavaScript:

var canvas = document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx = canvas.getContext("2d");
ctx.font = "30px Arial";
ctx.fillText("Hello World",10,50);
