Create Your Own Canvas Paint App

  • Posted on March 25th, 2009

Mihai Sucan has created a helpful tutorial on how to create your very own simple HTML canvas paint application over on the Opera Developer Community.

Making a web application that allows users to draw on a canvas requires several important steps: setting up your HTML document with a canvas context (a canvas element with an id), setting up your script to target that canvas context and draw inside it and adding the required mouse event handlers for user interaction and associated logic. Once the event handlers are in place, it’s then fairly simple to add any desired functionality.
