HTML | coords Attribute
  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2019

The HTML coords Attribute is used to specify the coordinate of an area in an image-map. It is used with shape attribute to specify the size, shape, and placement of an area. (0, 0) is the coordinate of the top-left corner.

Syntax:

<element coords="value">

Attribute Values:

  • x1, y1, x2, y2: It specifies the coordinate of top-left (x1, y1) and bottom-right (x2, y2) corner of the rectangle.
  • x, y, radius: It specifies the center coordinates (x, y) and radius (radius) of circle.
  • x1, y1, x2, y2, .., xn, yn: It specifies the coordinates of polygon. If the first and last coordinate pairs are not the same, the browser will add the last coordinate pair to close the polygon.
