Fabric.js Polyline objectCaching Property

  • Last Updated : 22 Jan, 2021
Geek Week

In this article, we are going to see the objectCaching property of a Polyline canvas 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, 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 Polyline. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Polyline provided by FabricJS and set the objectCaching of canvas Polyline using objectCaching property, and render the Polyline on the Canvas as given in the below example.

Syntax:

var polyline = new fabric.Polyline(Points, {  
    objectCaching: boolean
   });  

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

  • objectCaching: When `true`, the object is cached on an additional canvas. When `false`, the object is not cached unless necessary ( clipPath ) default to true

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



Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html
<head
  
    <!-- Loading the FabricJS library -->
    <script src
    </script
</head
  
<body
        <div style="text-align: center;width: 600px;"
        <h1 style="color: green;"

        </b
        </div
    <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 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,  
            cornerStyle: 'circle',  
            objectCaching: 'false'  
  
        }); 
  
        // Render the polyline in canvas 
        canvas.add(polyline); 
    </script
</body
  
</html>
