This plugin mimics the HTML5 Canvas's context2d.

The goal is to provide a way for current canvas implementations to print directly to a PDF.

Methods

(inner) arc(x, y, radius, startAngle, endAngle, counterclockwise)

Source:

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

Parameters:
Name Type Description
x Number

The x-coordinate of the center of the circle

y Number

The y-coordinate of the center of the circle

radius Number

The radius of the circle

startAngle Number

The starting angle, in radians (0 is at the 3 o'clock position of the arc's circle)

endAngle Number

The ending angle, in radians

counterclockwise Boolean

Optional. Specifies whether the drawing should be counterclockwise or clockwise. False is default, and indicates clockwise, while true indicates counter-clockwise.

(inner) arcTo(x1, y1, x2, y2, radius)

Source:

The arcTo() method creates an arc/curve between two tangents on the canvas.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
x1 Number

The x-coordinate of the first tangent

y1 Number

The y-coordinate of the first tangent

x2 Number

The x-coordinate of the second tangent

y2 Number

(inner) beginPath()

Source:

The beginPath() method begins a path, or resets the current path.

(inner) bezierCurveTo(cp1x, cp1y, cp2x, cp2y, x, y)

Source:

The bezierCurveTo() method adds a point to the current path by using the specified control points that represent a cubic Bézier curve.

A cubic bezier curve requires three points. The first two points are control points that are used in the cubic Bézier calculation and the last point is the ending point for the curve. The starting point for the curve is the last point in the current path. If a path does not exist, use the beginPath() and moveTo() methods to define a starting point.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
cp1x Number

The x-coordinate of the first Bézier control point

cp1y Number

The y-coordinate of the first Bézier control point

cp2x Number

The x-coordinate of the second Bézier control point

cp2y Number

The y-coordinate of the second Bézier control point

x Number

The x-coordinate of the ending point

y Number

The y-coordinate of the ending point

(inner) clearRect(x, y, w, h)

Source:

We cannot clear PDF commands that were already written to PDF, so we use white instead.
As a special case, read a special flag (ignoreClearRect) and do nothing if it is set. This results in all calls to clearRect() to do nothing, and keep the canvas transparent. This flag is stored in the save/restore context and is managed the same way as other drawing states.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
x Number

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle

y Number

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle

w Number

The width of the rectangle to clear, in pixels

h Number

The height of the rectangle to clear, in pixels

(inner) clip()

Source:

The clip() method clips a region of any shape and size from the original canvas.

(inner) closePath()

Source:

The closePath() method creates a path from the current point back to the starting point.

(inner) createEvent()

Source:

(inner) fill()

Source:

The fill() method fills the current drawing (path). The default color is black.

(inner) fillRect(x, y, w, h)

Source:

The fillRect() method draws a "filled" rectangle. The default color of the fill is black.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
x Number

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle

y Number

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle

w Number

The width of the rectangle, in pixels

(inner) fillText(text, x, y, maxWidth)

Source:

The fillText() method draws filled text on the canvas. The default color of the text is black.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
text String

Specifies the text that will be written on the canvas

x Number

The x coordinate where to start painting the text (relative to the canvas)

y Number

The y coordinate where to start painting the text (relative to the canvas)

maxWidth Number

Optional. The maximum allowed width of the text, in pixels

(inner) lineTo(x, y)

Source:

The lineTo() method adds a new point and creates a line TO that point FROM the last specified point in the canvas (this method does not draw the line).

Parameters:
Name Type Description

y

The y-coordinate of where to create the line to

(inner) measureText(text) → {Number}

Returns:
Type
Number

(inner) moveTo(x, y)

Source:

Moves the path to the specified point in the canvas, without creating a line

Parameters:
Name Type Description
x Number

The x-coordinate of where to move the path to

y Number

The y-coordinate of where to move the path to

(inner) quadraticCurveTo(cpx, cpy, x, y)

Source:

The quadraticCurveTo() method adds a point to the current path by using the specified control points that represent a quadratic Bézier curve.

A quadratic Bézier curve requires two points. The first point is a control point that is used in the quadratic Bézier calculation and the second point is the ending point for the curve. The starting point for the curve is the last point in the current path. If a path does not exist, use the beginPath() and moveTo() methods to define a starting point.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
cpx Number

The x-coordinate of the Bézier control point

cpy Number

The y-coordinate of the Bézier control point

x Number

The x-coordinate of the ending point

y Number
