Fabric.js ActiveSelection strokeDashOffset Property

  • Last Updated : 31 Jul, 2021

Fabric.js is a JavaScript library that is used to work with canvas. The canvas ActiveSelection is one of the classes of fabric.js that is used to create ActiveSelection instances. The canvas ActiveSelection means the ActiveSelection is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. In this article, we will be using the strokeDashOffset property.

Approach: First import the fabric.js library. After importing the library, create a canvas block in the body tag which will contain the ActiveSelection. After this, initialize an instance of Canvas and ActiveSelection class provided by Fabric.JS and use the strokeDashOffset property.


fabric.ActiveSelection(ActiveSelection, {
  strokeDashOffset : number

Parameters: This function takes a single parameter as mentioned above and described below.

  • strokeDashOffset: This parameter takes a number value.


Example: This example uses FabricJS to set the strokeDashOffset property of the canvas ActiveSelection as shown in the below example.
