The HTML5 Canvas API is not available on all browsers but limited to browsers that have adopted HTML5. In this title we don't cover the background story of HTML5 and the supported API's. We will see in a very quick and interactive tutorial the steps involved with creating a new Canvas element.
At this stage in our HTML5 canvas tutorial we can start drawing and interacting with the 2D canvas API. The last step we do in this task is to draw a background to make our canvas visible in the HTML document.
Initially when the canvas html5 element is created it is empty with no content and no boarder (it is transparent as well).
Not all Browsers support the canvas API. Although the list is growing and changing all modern browsers support in some level the API.
There are many HTML5 canvas tutorials out in the market some are free while others are paid. We go beyond shallow scans of technology. Our mission is consistently helping developers and new to development individuals to expand there skills. While others will create isolated titles on Canvas or other HTML5 topics our approach is integrated. The more you learn with us the more you will pick up on many other technologies based on need instead of basing it off a technology.
The best way to learn is through repetition and change. Sounds like conflicting ideas right? Its true you don't want to do the same thing over and over as you just learn to be a "parrot" and you will only master the skills of copy paste. While change can be hard and challenging without the right level of repetition its very hard to absorb new information. While other titles will focus on one topic our titles focus on an integrated learning experience that has the right level of repetition and new content.
Beyond our strategic content build up that will help your growth we focus on expanding your understanding of technologies that surround the ones you are working on in a very in depth strategy that works. The best way to find out is to give us a go.
if you have a background in programing in flash you will find the Canvas API very similar to other drawing apis such as the flash Drawing API.
Our AS3 Drawing API course will walk you through all the basic things you need to know about how to get rolling with the Flash graphics API. starting from the basics of creating basic shapes and all the way through dynamic animations such as the one in the preview page of this course.
