Canvas reference: The ellipse function

[No canvas support]
An example of the ellipse function (limited browser support)

The ellipse function is a relatively new function that is not widely supported yet. It behaves similarly to the arc function and the arguments are also similar. There's more arguments to specify though to allow for different widths, heights and orientations.

Arguments to the function

An example

    window.onload = function ()
        var canvas  = document.getElementById("cvs");
        var context = canvas.getContext('2d');

        context.fillStyle = 'red';
        context.ellipse(125, 125, 100, 50, 0, 0, 2 * Math.PI, false);
