Fabric.js Polygon transparentCorners Property

  • Last Updated : 31 Aug, 2020

In this article, we are going to see how to set the visibility of the corner of a canvas polygon using FabricJS. The canvas 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, fill color, stroke width, or shape.

To make it possible, we are going to use a JavaScript library called FabricJS. After importing the library using CDN, we will create a canvas block in the body tag which will contain our polygon. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and polygon provided by FabricJS and set the visibility of the corner of the polygon using transparentCorners property respectively, and render the polygon on the Canvas as given in the example below.

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 }],
      {
            cornerStrokeColor: string,
            transparentCorner: boolean
      }
)

Parameters: This property accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:



  • cornerStrokeColor: It is a string that specifies the stroke color of the controlling corners.
  • transparentCorner: It is a boolean value that specifies whether to make the controlling corners visible or not.

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

Below examples illustrates the Polygon transparentCorner Property in JavaScript:

Example 1: Here the transparentCorner property is disabled.
