[Tutorial] Text arranger with html5

Text arranger made up of numerous html5 API components. Play with the final app, and see how the different options interact with one another. Here are a couple things you might find interesting: Increasing the text size with a pattern that is the size of the canvas changes the pattern on the text. (It acts like a mask or window into the pattern itself.) Canvas width and height are affected by the style width and height (scaling). We will utilize a JavaScript library named modernizr.js that will help us figure out which browsers support which Canvas features. ```html <!doctype html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <title>CH3EX3: Text Arranger 3.0</title> <script src="modernizr.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="jscolor/jscolor.js"></script> <script src="script.js"> </head> <body> <div style="position: absolute; top: 50px; left: 50px;"> <canvas id="canvasOne" width="500" height="300"> Your browser does not support HTML5 Canvas. </canvas> <form> Text: <input id="textBox" placeholder="your text" /> <br> Text Font: <select id="textFont"> <option value="serif">serif</option> <option value="sans-serif">sans-serif</option> <option value="cursive">cursive</option> <option value="fantasy">fantasy</option> <option value="monospace">monospace</option> </select> <br> Font Weight: <select id="fontWeight"> <option value="normal">normal</option> <option value="bold">bold</option> <option value="bolder">bolder</option> <option value="lighter">lighter</option> </select> <br> Font Style: <select id="fontStyle"> <option value="normal">normal</option> <option value="italic">italic</option> <option value="oblique">oblique</option> </select> <br> Text Size: <input type="range" id="textSize" min="0" max="200" step="1” value="50"/> <br> Fill Type: <select id="fillType"> <option value="colorFill">Color Fill</option> <option value="linearGradient">Linear Gradient</option> <option value="radialGradient">Radial Gradient</option> <option value="pattern">pattern</option> </select> <br> Text Color: <input class="color" id="textFillColor" value="FF0000"/> <br> Text Color 2: <input class="color" id="textFillColor2" value ="000000"/> <br> Fill Or Stroke: <select id="fillOrStroke"> <option value="fill">fill</option> <option value="stroke">stroke</option> <option value="both">both</option> </select> <br> Text Baseline <select id="textBaseline"> <option value="middle">middle</option> <option value="top">top</option> <option value="hanging">hanging</option> <option value="alphabetic">alphabetic</option> <option value="ideographic">ideographic</option> <option value="bottom">bottom</option> </select> <br> Text Align <select id="textAlign"> <option value="center">center</option> <option value="start">start</option> <option value="end">end</option> <option value="left">left</option> <option value="right">right</option> </select> <br> Alpha: <input type="range" id="textAlpha" min="0.0" max="1.0" step="0.01" value="1.0"/> <br> Shadow X:<input type="range" id="shadowX" min="−100" max="100" step="1" value="1"/> <br> Shadow Y:<input type="range" id="shadowY" min="−100" max="100" step="1" value="1"/> <br> Shadow Blur: <input type="range" id="shadowBlur" min="1" max="100" step="1" value="1" /> <br> Shadow Color: <input class="color" id="shadowColor" value="707070"/> <br> Canvas Width: <input type="range" id="canvasWidth" min="0" max="1000" step="1" value="500"/> <br> Canvas Height: <input type="range" id="canvasHeight" min="0" max="1000" step="1" value="300"/> <br> Canvas Style Width: <input type="range" id="canvasStyleWidth" min="0" max="1000" step="1" value="500"/> <br> Canvas Style Height: <input type="range" id="canvasStyleHeight" min="0" max="1000" step="1" value="300"/> <br> <input type="button" id="createImageData" value="Create Image Data"> <br> <br> <textarea id="imageDataDisplay" rows=10 cols=30></textarea> </form> </div> </body> </html> ``` Now we are going to add all the logical part of the application. ```js windows.addEventListener("Load", eventWindowLoaded, false);
