Fabric.js Polygon lockSkewingX Property

In this article, we are going to see how to lock horizontally skewing of a canvas polygon using FabricJS. The canvas polygon means the polygon is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. Further, the polygon 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 polygon. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and polygon provided by FabricJS and set whether to lock the horizontal skewing of the canvas polygon using lockSkewingX property.

Syntax:

fabric.Polygon([ 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }],
    {
        lockSkewingX: Boolean
    }
)

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

  • lockSkewingX: It is a boolean value which specifies whether to lock the horizontally skewing of a canvas or not.

Note: The dimension pixels are a must for creating a polygon.



Below example illustrate the Polygon lockSkewingX Property in JavaScript:
