Please review the first recipe in the book to refresh on the required HTML code. How to do it... Let's jump right in and create the flag of Somalia. 1. getContext("2d"); 31 Drawing Shapes in Canvas 2. fillRect(0,0,wid,hei); 3. Draw the star by calling the createStar function: createStar(context,wid/2,hei/2,7,20,5,"#ffffff",null,0); 4. Create the createStart function: function createStar(context,baseX,baseY, innerRadius,outerRadius, points,fillColor, strokeColor,tilt){ // all the rest of the code in here } 5.

LineTo(baseX , (i+1)*zagHeight); In the first line we step away from the current position and expand the line out half way through the height of the triangle, and to the extreme point on the right; and then on the second line we return back to the starting x point and update our y to the starting point of the next line segment. By the way, the addition of baseX +25 is totally arbitrary. I just played with it until it looked good, but if you want you could use ratios instead (that way if you expand the canvas it would still look good).

Great! We now have a modern triangle creator that could deal with the Star of David. 29 Drawing Shapes in Canvas There's more... OK, time to connect the dots (literally speaking) and create the flag of Israel. Looking back at our original code we find ourselves using the createTriangle function twice to create the full Star of David shape. cos(radian*240+tilt) * radius, null,"#0040C0"); We are sending in three points on the virtual circle to create a triangle. We split our virtual circle to three equal parts and find the point values at the 0, 120, and 240 degrees.
