Text and the Canvas Context
We've already discussed a couple Canvas context properties that affect the canvas in a
global fashion: fillStyle and strokeStyle . However, there are two areas that visually
demonstrate how changes to the properties of the context can affect the entire HTML5
Canvas: alpha transparencies and shadows.
Global Alpha and Text
Using alpha is a cool way to make objects seem to be partially or fully transparent on
HTML5 Canvas. The globalAlpha property of the Canvas context is used for this pur-
pose. After globalAlpha is applied, it affects all drawing on the canvas, so you need to
be careful when setting it.
