Hello,

I'm about to design a 3 tier layer web application as:

database(sql server) <> middle tier (mvc/c#) <> front-end (js/html/css)

on a page I will be providing <canvas></canvas> so that user can sketch 2d objects using javascript. This will be a SVG sketch and I need to let user store that in a table (as xml).

My question is how can I get a handle to the canvas and what it lives on it after a sketch is done?

Thanks,
ak

Get a "handle" from where? C#, or Javascript?

The canvas is just an element in the page, so you can grab it like:
var canvas  = document.getElementById("Your_Canvas_Id");

Open in new window

To get the contents of the canvas as a base64 encoded value that you can save to the database, you can use the toDataURL() method of the canvas object:
var data = canvas.toDataURL();

Open in new window
