In this article, we are going to see how to lock vertical scaling of a canvas circle using FabricJS. The canvas means the circle is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. Further, the circle can be customized when it comes to initial stroke color, fill color, stroke width, or radius.

Approach: To make it possible, we are going to use a JavaScript library called FabricJS. After importing the library using CDN, we will create a canvas block in the body tag which will contain our circle. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Circle provided by FabricJS and lock vertical scaling of the circle using lockScalingY property and render the Circle on the Canvas as given in the example below.


    radius: number,
    lockScalingY: boolean

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • radius: It specifies the radius of circle.
  • lockScalingY: It specifies whether to lock vertical scaling or not.

Example: This example uses FabricJS to lock vertical scaling of a canvas circle.
