Fabric.js is a JavaScript library that is used to work with canvas. The canvas image is one of the class of fabric.js that is used to create image instances. The canvas image means the Image is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. The hasControls property of the image is used to enable or disable the controls of the image.

After this, initialize an instance of Canvas and image class provided by Fabric.JS and then use the hasControls property to enable or disable the controls of the canvas image. After this render the image on the canvas and click on the output image to see the output effects.


fabric.Image(image, {
    hascontrols : Boolean

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

  • image: This parameter takes the image element.
  • hasControls: This parameter takes a boolean value to enable or disable the controls of the canvas image.
