In this article, we are going to see how to set the selectionBackgroundColor of a Path using Fabric.js. The Path in Fabric.js 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 Fabric.js. 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 Fabric.js and use the selectionBackgroundColor property to change the active background color of the path.


fabric.Path('path', {
    selectionBackgroundColor: String

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

  • selectionBackgroundColor: It is a string that specifies the color of the background when active.

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



<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <!-- FabricJS CDN -->
    <script src
    <div style="text-align: center;width: 400px;"
        <h1 style="color: green;"
            Fabric.js | Path selectionBackgroundColor Property 
    <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',
          selectionBackgroundColor: 'lightgreen'
