To copy data from one canvas to another, you can use the following steps:

  1. Create two canvas elements in your HTML document with unique IDs, for example:
1
2
<canvas id="sourceCanvas"></canvas>
<canvas id="destinationCanvas"></canvas>


  1. Get references to the canvas elements in JavaScript by using the getElementById method:
1
2
var sourceCanvas = document.getElementById('sourceCanvas');
var destinationCanvas = document.getElementById('destinationCanvas');


  1. Obtain the 2D rendering contexts for both canvas elements:
1
2
var sourceCtx = sourceCanvas.getContext('2d');
var destinationCtx = destinationCanvas.getContext('2d');


  1. Copy the data from the source canvas to the destination canvas using the drawImage method:
1
destinationCtx.drawImage(sourceCanvas, 0, 0);


The drawImage method takes several parameters, including the source canvas, the starting coordinates (in this case, (0, 0)), and any additional parameters for resizing or cropping the data if needed.

  1. You can optionally specify a region on the source canvas to copy by adding more parameters to the drawImage method, such as the width and height of the region:
1
destinationCtx.drawImage(sourceCanvas, startX, startY, width, height, destX, destY, width, height);


Replace startX, startY, width, and height with the desired values for the region on the source canvas, and destX and destY with the coordinates where you want the copied data to be placed on the destination canvas.


By following these steps, you can successfully copy data from one canvas to another.
