Fabric.js Polygon paintFirst Property

  • Last Updated : 20 Jan, 2021

In this article, we are going to see the paintFirst property of a polygon canvas using FabricJS. The canvas polygon means the polygon is movable and can be stretched according to requirements. 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 paintFirst of canvas polygon using paintFirst property, and render the polygon on the Canvas as given in the below example.

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course.

Syntax:

fabric.Polygon([
    { x: pixel, y: pixel },
    { x: pixel, y: pixel },
    { x: pixel, y: pixel},
    { x: pixel, y: pixel},
    { x: pixel, y: pixel }
],
{
    paintFirst : string
});

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



  • paintFirst: It specifies if the fill or the stroke is drawn first (one of “fill” or “stroke”)

Below examples illustrate the Fabric.JS Polygon paintFirst in JavaScript:

        // Initiate a polygon instance 
        var polygon = new fabric.Polygon([ 
            { x: 295, y: 10 }, 
            { x: 235, y: 198 }, 
            { x: 385, y: 78 },

                fill:'green',
                stroke: 'blue',
             paintFirst: 'fill'
  
        }); 
  
        // Render the polygon in canvas 
        canvas.add(polygon);
