In this article, we are going to see how to change the moveCursor of the text canvas using Fabric.js. The canvas means the text written is movable, rotatable, resizable, and can be stretched. Further, the text itself cannot be edited like a textbox. This property is used to set the cursor that will be used when the Text is moved.

Approach: To make it possible, we are going to use a JavaScript library called Fabric.js. After importing the library using CDN, we will create a canvas block in the body tag that will contain our text. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Text provided by Fabric.js and set the move cursor value of the canvas text using moveCursor property.


   moveCursor: String

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

  • moveCursor: It specifies that the cursor value when moving the canvas object.


Below is the example that illustrates the use of moveCursor property in Fabric.js:





<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- Loading the FabricJS library -->
  <script src=
  <div style="text-align: center;
              width: 400px;">
    <h1 style="color: green;">
      Fabric.js | Text moveCursor Property
  <div style="text-align: center;">
    <canvas id="canvas" width="400" height="200"
      style="border:1px solid green;">
    // Create a new instance of Canvas
    var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
    // Create a new Text instance
    var geek = new fabric.Text('Geeks for Geeks', {
      moveCursor: 'pointer'
    // Render the text on Canvas
