Fabric.js Textbox hoverCursor Property
  • Last Updated : 19 Jan, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to set the hoverCursor property of a Textbox canvas using FabricJS. The canvas Textbox means Textbox 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 FabricJS. After importing the library, we will create a canvas block in the body tag which will contain the Textbox. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Textbox provided by FabricJS and set the hoverCursor of canvas Textbox using hoverCursor property and render the Textbox on the Canvas as given in the below example.

Syntax:

fabric.Textbox('text', {
    hoverCursor: string
});

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

  • hoverCursor: It specifies the value of hoverCursor.

Example: This example uses FabricJS to set the hoverCursor property the canvas textbox.

          'A Computer Science Portal', {
          width: 500,
          hoverCursor: 'pointer'
      });
  
      // Render the Textbox in canvas
