50projectsIn50days – Day 22: Drawing App

There is a toolbox in the middle of the screen, as a Paint emulator. Below the box you can see buttons related to the possibilities of change the color and the size of the draw up.

The elements selected related with the size, color are similiar in each case. There is an event listener which is waiting the click button. But, what happen with the canvas?

The canvas have event listener as you can see in the following section of the code

canvas.addEventListener('mousedown', (e) => {
    isPressed = true
    x = e.offsetX
    y = e.offsetY

canvas.addEventListener('mouseup', (e) => {
    isPressed = false
    x = undefined
    y = undefined

canvas.addEventListener('mousemove', (e) => {
        const x2 = e.offsetX
        const y2 = e.offsetY
        drawCircle(x2, y2)
        drawLine(x, y, x2, y2)
        x = x2
        y = y2

If the button is pressed you will draw a line.
