To reset the path style in a canvas, you can use the context.beginPath() method. This method creates a new path, effectively resetting the current path and all its properties.


Here is an example:

const canvas = document.querySelector('canvas');
const ctx = canvas.getContext('2d');

// Set the initial path style
ctx.lineWidth = 2;
ctx.strokeStyle = 'red';

// Perform some drawing actions
ctx.moveTo(0, 0);
ctx.lineTo(100, 100);
ctx.stroke();

// Reset the path style
ctx.beginPath();

// Now you can set new path styles if needed
ctx.lineWidth = 1;
ctx.strokeStyle = 'blue';

// Perform more drawing actions
ctx.moveTo(100, 0);
ctx.lineTo(0, 100);
ctx.stroke();


In this example, the initial path style is set with ctx.lineWidth and ctx.strokeStyle. After performing some drawing actions, the path style is reset with ctx.beginPath(). Then, you can set new path styles as needed and continue drawing on the canvas.
