JavaScript:

var c = document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx = c.getContext("2d");
ctx.beginPath();
ctx.arc(100, 75, 50, 0, 2 * Math.PI);
ctx.stroke();

Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the method.

Method
arc() 4.0 9.0 3.6 4.0 10.1

Definition and Usage

The arc() method creates an arc/curve (used to create circles, or parts of circles).

Tip: To create a circle with arc(): Set start angle to 0 and end angle to 2*Math.PI.

Tip: Use the stroke() or the fill() method to actually draw the arc on the canvas.

An arc

Center
arc(100, 75, 50, 0 * Math.PI, 1.5 * Math.PI)
Start angle
arc(100, 75, 50, 0, 1.5 * Math.PI)
End angle
arc(100, 75, 50, 0 * Math.PI, 1.5 * Math.PI)

JavaScript syntax: context.arc(x, y, r, sAngle, eAngle, counterclockwise);
