Fabric.js is a JavaScript library that is used to work with canvas. The canvas Itext is one of the classes of Fabric.js that is used to create Itext instances. The Itext in Fabric.js is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. In this article, we will be using hoverCursor property to style the cursor in a canvas Itext.

Approach: First import the Fabric.js library. After importing the library, create a canvas block in the body tag which will contain the Itext. After this, initialize an instance of Canvas and Itext class provided by Fabric.js, use the hoverCursor property to style the cursor, and render the Itext on the canvas.


fabric.Itext(Itext, {
  hoverCursor : string

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

  • hoverCursor: It specifies the style of the cursor.

Example: This example uses Fabric.js to set the hoverCursor property of the canvas Itext as shown in the below example:


  <!-- FabricJS CDN -->
  <script src
  <div style="text-align: center;width: 400px;"
    <h1 style="color: green;"
      Fabric.js | Itext hoverCursor Property 
  <div style="text-align: center;"
    <canvas id="canvas" width="400" height="200"
