<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <canvas width="800" height="600" id="canvas">Your browser does not support the canvas tag.</canvas> <script> var canvas = document.getElementById('canvas'); var c = canvas.getContext('2d'); var gradient = c.createLinearGradient(0,0,200,200); gradient.addColorStop(0, "#F0E68C"); gradient.addColorStop(1, "crimson"); c.fillStyle = gradient; c.fillRect(0,0,550,300); c.fillStyle = "#fff"; c.font = "italic 30pt Arial"; c.shadowColor = "#000"; c.shadowOffsetX = 0; c.shadowOffsetY = 0; c.shadowBlur = 20; c.fillText("This is a canvas example !", 50,150); </script> </body> </html>
And the output will be:
