Browser Support

Internet Explorer Firefox Opera Google Chrome Safari

Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari support the fill() method.

Note: Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions, do not support the <canvas> element.


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();
