Class: CanvasImmediateRenderer


A concrete subclass of VectorContext that implements direct rendering of features and geometries to an HTML5 Canvas context. Instances of this class are created internally by the library and provided to application code as vectorContext member of the RenderEvent object associated with postcompose, precompose and render events emitted by layers and maps.




Render a circle geometry into the canvas. Rendering is immediate and uses the current fill and stroke styles.

drawFeature(feature, style)
