In this article, we are going to see how to set the moveCursor property of a canvas Polyline using FabricJS. The canvas Polyline means the Polyline is movable and can be stretched according to requirements. Further, the Polyline can be customized when it comes to initial stroke color, shape, 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 Polyline. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Polyline provided by FabricJS and set the move cursor value of canvas Polyline using moveCursor property, and render the Polyline on the Canvas as given in the below example.


var polyline = new fabric.Polyline(Points, {  
          moveCursor: string

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

  • moveCursor: It is a string that specifies the cursor to be used when moving the canvas object.

The below example illustrates the left property in Fabric.js:



<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <!-- Loading the FabricJS library -->
    <script src
        <div style="text-align: center;width: 600px;"
        <h1 style="color: green;"> GeeksforGeeks </h1
        <b> Fabric.js | Polyline moveCursor Property </b
       <canvas id="canvas"
            style="border:1px solid #000000;"
        // Initiate a Canvas instance 
        var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas"); 
        // Initiate a polyline instance 
        var polyline = new fabric.Polyline([ 
        { x: 200, y: 10 }, {x: 250, y: 50 }, 
        { x: 250, y: 180}, { x: 150, y: 180}, 
        { x: 150, y: 50 }, { x: 200, y: 10 }], 
              stroke: 'green',  
            strokeWidth: 3,  
            moveCursor: 'pointer' 
        // Render the polyline in canvas 


Output of the above code
