Hi

In this script below I have a series of circles with labels . I need to make them connectable by lines based on (x,y) coordinates of clicked

on  previous and current circle node . Now I can get the (X,y) coordinates of clicked circle .  I need to save the information from each

 click so that it is available for  line drawing script both  . Here is the script : https://jsfiddle.net/sarmadm/4tr0ejnc/

adjust you "if" :
Test page : https://jsfiddle.net/4tr0ejnc/1/

       if(dist <=30)
       { 
          saveLabel=circles[i].label;  
          circX=circles[i].x;
          circY=circles[i].y;
          if(previous_clicked_circle) {
            context.beginPath();
            context.moveTo(previous_clicked_circle[0], previous_clicked_circle[1]);
            context.lineTo(circX, circY);
            context.stroke();
          }
          previous_clicked_circle = [circX, circY];
          break; // break the loop
        }

Open in new window



your full page follow now :

<div id="wrap">
  <p id="msg" class="blue">Please click on the page within the blue lines</p>
  <canvas id="myCanvas" onclick="clickIt(event)" width="600" height="600">

I worked on this yesterday but ran out of time to finish. I modified your code, however, your arrow heads still need some work as the sometimes draw incorrectly. I'm not sure if leakim already answered but I already did the work so posting anyway. Hope this helps.

I include it as a standalone html file below.

Regards
Pierre
