Fabric.js | Text shadow Property

  • Last Updated : 31 Aug, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to add shadow to the text canvas using FabricJS. The canvas means text written is movable, rotatable, resizable, and can be stretched. But in this article, we will add shadow to it. Further, the text itself cannot be edited like a textbox.

Approach: 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 text. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Text provided by FabricJS and use the shadow property to add shadow and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the example below.


fabric.text(text :string, shadow: fabric.shadow); 

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

  • text: It specifies the text content.
  • shadow: It specifies the shadow object.

Program: This example uses FabricJS to add shadow to the text canvas. 


<!DOCTYPE html>
        Fabric.js | Text shadow Property
    <!-- Loading the FabricJS library -->
    <script src=
    <canvas id="canvas" width="600" height="200"
        style="border:1px solid #000000;">
        // Create a new instance of Canvas
        var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
        // Create shadow object
        var shadow = new fabric.Shadow({
            color: 'black',
            blur: 5
        // Create a new Text instance
        var text = new fabric.Text('GeeksforGeeks', {
            shadow: shadow
        // Render the text on Canvas
