D3.js line.context() method

  • Last Updated : 17 Aug, 2020

The d3.line.context() method lets you render the line in a canvas element’s context. The line will be rendered in the current context when the line generator is invoked. We can set the context of our line on our own using this method like color, stroke, fill, etc. The default value is null.

Syntax:

d3.line.context(_context);

Parameters:

  • _context: context set by the user.

Return Value: This method returns the current context.

Example 1: In this example, change color, stroke using this method.
