HTML5 Canvas Line Color

In the previous page we learned how to draw a line with a given width. By default the color of the line is black. But we can change the color of the line using the strokeStyle property just before calling stroke() method. .

The following example will draw the line in blue color.

<!DOCTYPE html5>

<canvas id ="canvas1" width="300" height="200" style="border:2px solid #FF0000;">

var c1=document.getElementById("canvas1");
var context1=c1.getContext("2d");
context1.strokeStyle = 'blue';

Try this example online here. [ It opens in a new tab / windows, so you can come back ] and try to make some changes in the color or the coordinates of the two end points of the line to see how it looks like.
