JavaScript - draw svg on canvas element

In this article, we would like to show you how to draw SVG image on an HTML canvas element using JavaScript.

Quick solution:

var canvas = document.querySelector('#my-canvas');
var context = canvas.getContext('2d');

var image = new Image();

image.onload = function() {
    //      drawImage(image, xStart, yStart, imageWidth, imageHeight)
    context.drawImage(image, 50, 50, 100, 100); 
};

image.src = 'https://dirask.com/static/bucket/1632934722_loupe.svg';

 

Practical example

In this example, we create a new Image with src set to the path to our svg graphics. Then using drawImage() method we draw the svg on the canvas.

Note:

Add drawImage() method to onload event to make sure that the graphic will load correctly.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>

    #my-canvas { border: 1px solid gray; }

  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <canvas id="my-canvas" width="200" height="200"></canvas>
  <script>

    var canvas = document.querySelector('#my-canvas');
    var context = canvas.getContext('2d');

    var image = new Image();

    image.onload = function() {
        context.drawImage(image, 50, 50, 100, 100); // drawImage(image, x-start, y-start, width, height) 
    };

    image.onerror = function() {
      	context.fillStyle = 'red';
      	context.font = '16px Arial';
       	context.fillText('Image loading error!', 10, 30);
    };

    image.src = 'https://dirask.com/static/bucket/1632934722_loupe.svg';

  </script>
</body>
</html>
