# Circle Is Not Connecting Through Lines Properly Using Canvas

## 01 March 2020 - 1 answer

I am trying to create 11 circles which connected through lines with a middle circle. I am trying to draw the circles. Here I have doing some r&d but I could not able to make lines. Please help me to complete this.

`````` var canvas, ctx;
var circlePoints = [];
function createCanvasPainting() {

canvas = document.getElementById('myCanvas');
if (!canvas || !canvas.getContext) {
return false;
}
canvas.width = 600;
canvas.height = 600;
ctx = canvas.getContext('2d');
ctx.strokeStyle = '#B8D9FE';
ctx.fillStyle = '#B8D9FE';
ctx.translate(300, 250);
ctx.arc(0, 0, 50, 0, Math.PI * 2); //center circle
ctx.stroke();
ctx.fill();
var angleRotate = 0;
for (var i=0; i<11; i++) {
if (i > 0) {
angleRotate += 32.72;
}
lineToAngle(ctx, 0, 0, 200, angleRotate);
}
}

function lineToAngle(ctx, x1, y1, length, angle) {

angle *= Math.PI / 180;

var x2 = x1 + length * Math.cos(angle),
y2 = y1 + length * Math.sin(angle);
ctx.beginPath();
ctx.moveTo(x1, y1);
ctx.lineTo(x2, y2);
ctx.lineWidth = 1;
ctx.arc(x2, y2, 40, 0, Math.PI * 2);
ctx.fill();
ctx.stroke();

circlePoints.push({x: x2, y: y2});
// console.log(circlePoints);
}

createCanvasPainting();``````

See below I removed all the "noise" from your code.
Just circles with lines connecting with a middle circle.

``````canvas = document.getElementById('myCanvas');
canvas.width = canvas.height = 200;
ctx = canvas.getContext('2d');
ctx.lineWidth = 1;
ctx.translate(99, 99);
angle = 0;

function draw() {
ctx.clearRect(-99, -99, 200, 200);
ctx.beginPath();
ctx.arc(0, 0, 35 + Math.cos(angle / 3000), 0, Math.PI * 2);
ctx.stroke();
ctx.fill();

for (var i = 0; i < 11; i++) {
a = angle * Math.PI / 180;
x = 80 * Math.cos(a)
y = 80 * Math.sin(a)
ctx.beginPath();
ctx.arc(x, y, 18, 0, Math.PI * 2);
ctx.moveTo(x, y);
ctx.lineTo(0, 0);
ctx.fill();
ctx.stroke();
angle += 32.7;
}
}

setInterval(draw, 10);``````
