Fabric.js Group selectable Property
  • Last Updated : 01 Apr, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to set the selectable of a Group of the canvas using Fabric.js. The Group in Fabric.js is movable and can be stretched according to requirements. Further, the Group can be customized when it comes to initial stroke color, height, width, fill color, or stroke width.

To make it possible, we are going to use a JavaScript library called Fabric.js. After importing the library, we will create a canvas block in the body tag that will contain the Group. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Group provided by Fabric.js and set the selectability of a canvas Group using the selectable property.


fabric.Group([canvas1, canvas2], {
   selectable: Boolean

Parameters: This property accepts a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:

  • selectable : It specifies the selectability of a canvas Group. It contains a boolean value.

Below examples illustrate the use of Fabric.js Group selectable property in JavaScript:


<!DOCTYPE html>
  <!-- FabricJS CDN -->
  <script src=
    <div style="text-align: center;width: 400px;">
      <h1 style="color: green;">
          Fabric.js | Group selectable Property
    <div style="text-align: center;">
      <canvas id="canvas" width="500" height="300"
        style="border:1px solid green;">
      // Initiate a Canvas instance
      var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
      // Initiate a circle instance
      var circle = new fabric.Circle({
        radius: 100,
        fill: 'lightgreen',
        scaleY: 0.6,
        originX: 'center',
        originY: 'center'
      // Initiate a text instance
      var text = new fabric.Text('GeeksforGeeks', {
        fontSize: 25,
        originX: 'center',
        originY: 'center'
      // Initiate a Group instance
      var group = new fabric.Group([ circle, text ], {  
        selectable: false       
      // Render the Group in canvas
