Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the property.

Property
miterLimit 4.0 9.0 3.6 4.0 10.1

Definition and Usage

The miterLimit property sets or returns the maximum miter length.

The miter length is the distance between the inner corner and the outer corner where two lines meet.

Miter Limit figure 1

Tip: The miterLimit property works only if the lineJoin attribute is "miter".

The miter length grows bigger as the angle of the corner gets smaller.

To prevent the miter length from being too long, we can use the miterLimit property.

If the miter length exceeds the miterLimit value, the corner will be displayed as lineJoin type "bevel" (Fig 3):

Miter Limit figure 2
Default value: 10
JavaScript syntax: context.miterLimit = number;
