HTML | canvas closePath() Method
  • Last Updated : 25 Jul, 2019

The canvas beginPath() method is used to create a path from the current point back to the starting point. After calling the closePath() method, we can use stroke() method to draw the path, the fill() method to fill the path with black color as the default and fillStyle property to fill with another color or gradient or pattern.

Syntax:

context.closePath();

Example 1: This example does not use fill() method to fill the close path.
