Fabric.js Polygon originX Property

  • Last Updated : 26 Aug, 2020

In this article, we are going to see how to set the horizontal origin of the transformation of an object 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 the horizontal transformation of the polygon using originX property and render the polygon on the Canvas as given in the example below.

Syntax:

fabric.Triangle([ 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel}, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel}, 
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }],
    {
        originX: string
    });

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

  • originX: It specifies the horizontal transformation of a canvas polygon.

Note: Dimension pixels is must to create a polygon.



Below examples illustrate the Fabric.JS Polygon originX property in JavaScript:

Example:

    <canvas id="canvas" width="600" height="200" 
        style="border:1px solid #000000;">
    </canvas>
  
    <script>
  
        // Initiate a Canvas instance 
        var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
  
        // Initiate a polygon instance 
        var polygon = new fabric.Polygon([
            { x: 295, y: 10 },
            { x: 235, y: 198 },
            { x: 385, y: 78 },
            { x: 205, y: 78 },
            { x: 355, y: 198 }], {
            fill: 'green',
            originX: 'center'
        });
  
        // Render the polygon in canvas 
        canvas.add(polygon); 
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>
