Fabric.js | Text strokeDashOffset Property

In this article, we are going to see how to add stroke offset 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 a stroke offset. Further, the text itself cannot be edited like a textbox.

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 that will contain our text. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Text provided by FabricJS and create a stroke using stroke property and further use the strokeDashOffset property to add stroke offset and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the below example.


    text: string, 
    strokeDashOffset: number, 
    stroke: string

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

  • text: This parameter specifies the text.
  • strokeDashOffset: This parameter defines the amount of offset of stroke.
  • stroke: This parameter defines the stroke color.

Example: This example uses FabricJS to add stroke offset to the text canvas as given below.

            text with JavaScript
        <canvas id="canvas" width="600" height="200"
            style="border:1px solid #000000;">
            // Create a new instace of Canvas
            var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
            // Create a new Text instance
            var text = new fabric.Text('GeeksforGeeks', {
                strokeDashOffset: 10,
                stroke: 'red'
            // Render the text on Canvas
