Fabric.js Path scaleX Property

  • Last Updated : 27 Jan, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to set the default horizontal scale of a canvas Path using FabricJS. The canvas Path means the Path is movable and can be stretched according to requirements. Further, the Path 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 FabricJS. After importing the library, we will create a canvas block in the body tag that will contain the Path. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Path provided by FabricJS and set the default horizontal scale of the Path using scaleX property, and render the Path on the Canvas as given in the below example.


fabric.Path('path', {
   scaleX: Number

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

  • scaleX: It specifies the default horizontal scale.

The below example illustrates the use of Fabric.js Path scaleX property in JavaScript:



<!DOCTYPE html>
    <!-- FabricJS CDN -->
    <script src=
    <div style="text-align: center;width: 400px;">
        <h1 style="color: green;">GeeksforGeeks</h1>
        <b>Fabric.js | Path scaleX Property</b>
    <div style="text-align: center;">
        <canvas id="canvas" width="400" height="200" 
        style="border:1px solid green;">
        // Initiate a Canvas instance 
        var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
        var geek = new fabric.Path('M 0 0 L 100 100 L 0 100 z', {
            fill: 'green',
            scaleX: 3
