Definition and Usage

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

Tip: Use the fillStyle property to fill with another color/gradient.

Note: If the path is not closed, the fill() method will add a line from the last point to the startpoint of the path to close the path (like closePath()), and then fill the path.

JavaScript syntax: context.fill();
