Explanation of above code

  • The HTML document is declared with a <!DOCTYPE html> declaration, and the <html> tag is opened.
  • The document's language is set to "en" with the lang attribute in the <html> tag.
  • The document's head section contains various meta tags, including one that sets the document's character encoding to "UTF-8", one that specifies the version of Internet Explorer to use, and one that sets the width of the viewport.
  • The html2canvas library is included in the document using a script tag that references the CDN link where the library is hosted.
  • The document's title is set to "div 2 jpg using html2canvas js library".
  • Some CSS rules are defined in the <style> tag to hide the element with class .result and to add a blue border to any canvas element.
  • The document's body begins with a div element that has a class of html. Inside this div, there's an h2 tag and a p tag with some Lorem Ipsum text. There's also a button element with an onclick attribute that calls a convert function when clicked.
  • Below the div with class .html, there's another div with class .result. This div contains an a tag with an empty href attribute and a button element with the text "Download JPG". There's also an hr element that adds a horizontal line to the page.
  • The script section begins with two variable declarations using const. The div variable is set to the element with class .html, and the result variable is set to the element with class .result.
  • The convert function is defined. This function uses the html2canvas library to convert the div element with class .html to a canvas element. When the conversion is complete, a callback function is executed, which does the following:
    • The resulting canvas element is appended to the result element.
    • A new variable cvs is declared and set to the first canvas element on the page.
    • A new variable dataURI is declared and set to a string that represents the canvas image data in Base64 format.
    • A new variable downloadLink is declared and set to the a element within the .result element.
    • The href attribute of the downloadLink element is set to the dataURI string.
    • The download attribute of the downloadLink element is set to "div2canvasimage.jpg".
    • The dataURI string is logged to the console.
  • Finally, the result element is displayed by setting its display property to "block".
