HTML | canvas arc() Method

The arc() method is used to create an arc/curve i.e. circles, or parts of circles.

Syntax:

context.arc(x, y, r, sAngle, eAngle, counterclockwise);

Parameters:



  • x: This parameter specifies the x-coordinate of the center of the circle.
  • y: This parameter specifies the y-coordinate of the center of the circle.
  • r: This parameter specifies the radius of the circle.
  • sAngle: This parameter specifies the starting angle, in radians( 3 o’clock position of the arc’s circle denotes 0).
  • eAngle: This parameter specifies the ending angle in radians.
  • counterclockwise: This parameter specifies the drawing should be clockwise or anticlockwise. It is false by default which denotes clockwise.
