How to Create Pattern

Your browser does not support the canvas element.

To create pattern, follow these steps

  1. canvas - Assigning the canvas element to a variable.
  2. ctx - Assigning the 2d rendering context to another variable by calling the getContext('2d') method.
  3. img - Assigning a blank DOM object for a HTML img element by using the Image class to a variable.
  4. src - Setting the src attribute to the path of a valid image file, you load that image into the image object just as if you set the src attribute of an actual HTML img element.
  5. ptrn - Assigning a pattern with specified image and repetition using createPattern() canvas method to a variable.
  6. fillStyle - Use fillStyle canvas property to specify the pattern to use inside shapes (any shape).
  7. fillRect() - Use fillRect() canvas method to draws a rectangle that is filled according to the current fillStyle.
