CSS Question

Position Lables on a coordinate System Easeljs

Hey I am trying to build the following picture in canvas using the library:EaselJS.
enter image description here

My Picture components are:


  1. two circles - yellow and red and a light green background

  2. a coordinate system from 0 to 1 with all the necessary labels which appear in the picture.



I have succeeded in my two goals.
I have build a Coordinate System based on stackoverflow discussion:
How to draw a full coordinate system with Easeljs?.

I have left with 2 main problems which concern me a lot:


  1. I need to draw a rectangle(or square) which fits the coordinate system, the current rectangle is just a background.

  2. Also I need to add 3 labels: 'Critical Index' on the x axis, 'Long-term Severity Index' on the y axis and a headline of Long-term.



I would happy if someone could help me with this issues
I am adding the source code:



$(function(){
var stage = new createjs.Stage('canvas2d');
var circle1 = new createjs.Shape();
var circle2 = new createjs.Shape();

circle2.graphics.beginFill("yellow").drawCircle(0, 0, 300);
circle2.x = 500;
circle2.y = 0;
stage.addChild(circle2);
circle1.graphics.beginFill("red").drawCircle(0, 0, 150);

Answer

The syntax for creating a rectangle in EaselJS is just the same as making a circle. The difference lies when calling drawRect instead of drawCircle in the graphics chain.

I've added a rectangle with arbitrary position and size values to match your overall code style, and because I couldn't find any criteria quickly. I also removed the background color on the CSS.

As for the addition of labels on each axis, I highly recommend you to use DOM instead. EaselJS support for text is almost unusable. Even EaselJS itself recommends you to use a DOMElement instead of the Text DisplayObj. More on DOMElement here.

Personally, I think it would be a lot easier to get to your desired result by using pure DOM instead of canvas work, unless you're doing some heavy user-interaction-based animation stuff.

$(function(){
var stage = new createjs.Stage('canvas2d');
var circle1 = new createjs.Shape();
var circle2 = new createjs.Shape();
var rect = new createjs.Shape();
rect.graphics.f("green").drawRect(33, 0, 500, 455);
stage.addChild(rect);
circle2.graphics.beginFill("yellow").drawCircle(0, 0, 300);
circle2.x = 500;
circle2.y = 0;
stage.addChild(circle2);
circle1.graphics.beginFill("red").drawCircle(0, 0, 150);
circle1.x = 500;
circle1.y = 0;
stage.addChild(circle1);
stage.update();
var coord_xaxis = new createjs.Shape();
stage.addChild(coord_xaxis);
var coord_yaxis = new createjs.Shape();
stage.addChild(coord_yaxis);
var coord_arrow_x = new createjs.Shape();
//stage.addChild(coord_arrow_x);
var coord_arrow_y = new createjs.Shape();
//stage.addChild(coord_arrow_y);
var coord_xaxis_lines = new createjs.Shape();
stage.addChild(coord_xaxis_lines);
var coord_yaxis_lines = new createjs.Shape();
stage.addChild(coord_yaxis_lines);
/**$('#canvas2d').width()/15**/
