<canvas> element support in Opera Presto 2.5

See the W3C HTML5 reference: 4.8.11 The <canvas> element

The <canvas> element enables a bitmap drawing API in HTML. It can be considered the scripted version of the <img /> element. To draw a simple green square you would use the following code:

<!doctype html>
      <style> canvas { border:solid } </style>
      <p><canvas width="150" height="200">
         <canvas> element not supported.
      <script type="text/javascript">
         var canvas = document.getElementsByTagName("canvas"),
            context = canvas.getContext("2d")
            context.fillStyle = "lime"
            context.fillRect(0, 0, 150, 200)

Two interfaces are important for the <canvas> element: the HTMLCanvasElement interface which is exposed by the element and the CanvasRenderingContext2D interface which is what's being returned with the getContext("2d") method call.

Member Supported Notes
width Yes
height Yes
toDataURL() Yes
getContext(context) Yes Opera supports 2d and opera-2dgame as parameters.

The "opera-2dgame" parameter of the getContext() method is not guarenteed to be supported in future versions of Opera and should be considered experimental. Similar functionality to what it exposes has been added to the <canvas> specification based on feedback from Opera, and Opera will add support for those new methods in due course.
