I'm trying to create a chart using GWT. The chart has a grid and x and y axis labels and at least one line indicating status over time. The example code I got from a co-worker uses two classes the com.google.gwt.widgetideas.graphics.client package: GWTCanvas and Color.

The documentation about GWTCanvas says to use Canvas instead, but Canvas has a very limited number of methods. How do I replicate these methods?
- clear()
- setFillStyle(Color color)
- fillRect(double startX, double startY, double width, double height)
- setLineWidth(double width)
- setStrokeStyle(Color color)
- beginPath()
- moveTo(double x, double y)
- lineTo(double x, double y)
- stoke()

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to the Ranch.

To start with,the Canvas API docs of v2.3 says
This widget may not be supported on all browsers.
I hope you are aware of that. If you want to display charts, you might find this interesting http://code.google.com/p/gwt-google-apis/wiki/VisualizationGettingStarted

Coming back to your question. Check out Canvas#getContext2d.
