Graphic system

This chapter will show the usage of Cocos Creator's graphic drawing component interface.

Graphics API


Method Function Description
moveTo (x, y) Move the path to a specified point in the canvas without creating a line
lineTo (x, y) Add a new point, and then create a line from the point to the last specified point in the canvas
bezierCurveTo (c1x, c1y, c2x, c2y, x, y) Create cubic cubic Bezier curve
quadraticCurveTo (cx, cy, x, y) Create a second Bezier curve

| arc (cx, cy, r, a0, a1, counterclockwise) | Create arc / curve (for creating circle or part of a circle) | ellipse (cx, cy, rx, ry) | create an ellipse | circle (cx, cy, r) | create a circle | rect (x, y, w, h) | create a rectangle | close () | Create a path from the current point back to the starting point | stroke () | Draw a defined path | fill () | Fill the current drawing (path) | clear () | Clear all paths

Third Party Library

The Graphics component's API is designed according to the [Canvas] ( drawing interface, and there are a lot of graphics libraries based on the Canvas drawing interface, such as paper.js, raphael.js. Using the standard canvas drawing interfaces and thrid party libraries, we can extend a lot of more advanced functions on the Graphics components.

Here are some third-party advanced drawing libraries and related demo based on Graphics component extensions.
