Re: MaxCanvas jsui documentation?

Excellent. Here’s some SUPER BASIC examples that should help someone get started with canvas. Like me, for example :)
The functions where stuff actually happens are setup so you can cut an paste from simple canvas examples and see how they work.

I did notice that the font stuff doesn’t really work. I wasn’t able to specify a font name or size. According to http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/the-canvas-element.html#dom-context-2d-font
the font syntax follows that of CSS. The examples I tried didn’t work in Max6, I just got errors:
font "18pt Arial" not available, using default
It also seems that
ctx.textAlign = "center";
doesn’t work right – it just paints the text starting from the far left edge of the JSUI window.
