HTML | canvas beginPath() Method

The canvas beginPath() method is used to start a path or reset the current path. The moveTo(), lineTo(), quadricCurveTo(), bezierCurveTo(), arcTo(), and arc() methods are used to create paths. Also, the stroke() method is used to draw the path on the canvas.

Syntax:

context.beginPath();

Example 1:

filter_none

        var context = GFG.getContext("2d");
          
        // Create a path
        context.beginPath();
          
        // Set the path width
        context.lineWidth = "8";
          
        // Set the path color
        context.strokeStyle = "green";
          
        context.moveTo(100, 250);
        context.lineTo(150, 50);
        context.lineTo(250, 250);
          
        context.stroke();
