GraphicsJS Quick Start

Create an HTML file and give it the “index.html” name if you want to make a new web page, or open your HTML file where the drawing should be.

Include GraphicsJS into your web page

Reference the JavaScript file in the <head> section of your web page.
You can use the link as shown below or download graphics.min.js from the GraphicsJS CDN page and then put it into any folder of your site (you’ll have to use your own link in this case).

<head>
    <script src="https://cdn.anychart.com/js/latest/graphics.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

Create a container for the drawing

Add a block-based HTML element into your page, set the id, width and height attributes.

Example:

<body>
    <div id="container" style="width: 100%; height: 100%;"></div>
</body>
``

Create a drawing

Put the JavaScript tag <script> with the following code anywhere after the <div> section.

Example:

<script>
    // create a stage for the Deathly Hallows symbol
    stage = anychart.graphics.create('container');

    // draw the square
    stage.rect(25, 50, 350, 300);

    // draw the circle
    stage.circle(200, 250, 100);

    // draw the triangle
    stage.path()
        .moveTo(25, 350)
        .lineTo(200, 50)
        .lineTo(375, 350)
        .close();

    // draw the wand in the middle
    stage.path()
        .moveTo(200, 50)
        .lineTo(200, 350);
</script>

The result

After all these steps you should have the following result. You can launch and explore this GraphicsJS Drawing Sample in the Playground.

Below you can see how your full web page code should look like:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8"/>
    <script src="https://cdn.anychart.com/js/latest/graphics.min.js"></script>
</head>

    <div id="container" style="width: 100%; height: 100%"></div>
    <script>
        // create a stage for the Deathly Hallows symbol
        stage = anychart.graphics.create('container');

        // draw the square
        stage.rect(25, 50, 350, 300);

        // draw the circle
        stage.circle(200, 250, 100);

        // draw the triangle
        stage.path()
            .moveTo(25, 350)
            .lineTo(200, 50)
            .lineTo(375, 350)
            .close();

        // draw the wand in the middle
        stage.path()
            .moveTo(200, 50)
            .lineTo(200, 350);
    </script>
</body>
</html>
