Standards information


The ICanvasRenderingContext2D::clip method creates a new clipping region by calculating the intersection of the current clipping region and the area that the current path describes.

Starting with Internet Explorer 11 this method provides an optional parameter to use the non-zero winding number rule or the even-odd rule. Earlier versions of this method offer only the default non-zero winding number rule. The new clipping region replaces the current clipping region.
