In this article, we are going to see how to set the absolutePositioned of a Textbox using Fabric.js. It is meaningful only when the object is used as a clipPath. The Textbox in Fabric.js is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. Further, the Textbox 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 Fabric.js. After importing the library, we will create a canvas block in the body tag that will contain the Textbox. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Textbox provided by Fabric.js and set the absolute position of a canvas Textbox using absolutePositioned property.


fabric.Textbox('text', {
    absolutePositioned: boolean

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

  • absolutePositioned: It specifies whether the Textbox would be absolutely positioned.

Example: This example uses Fabric.js to set the absolute position of the Textbox.


    <!-- Adding the FabricJS library -->
    <script src=
    <h1 style="color: green;">
        Fabric.js | Textbox absolutePositioned Property
    <canvas id="canvas" width="600" height="300" 
        style="border:1px solid #000000">
        // Initiate a Canvas instance 
        var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
        // Create a new Textbox instance 
        var text = new fabric.Textbox(
            'A Computer Science Portal', {
            width: 450,
            absolutePositioned: true
        // Render the Textbox in canvas
