Fabric.js Text width Property

  • Last Updated : 31 Aug, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to change the width 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.

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 FabricJS and set the width of the canvas text using width property.

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof.

    </div>
 
    <div style="text-align: center;">
      <canvas id="canvas" width="400" height="200"
              style="border:1px solid green;">
      </canvas>
    </div>
 
    <script>
      // Create a new instance of Canvas
      var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
 
      // Create a new Text instance
      var geek = new fabric.Text('GeeksforGeeks', { 
        width: 5
      });
 
      // Render the text on Canvas
      canvas.add(geek);
      canvas.centerObject(geek);
