In this article, we are going to see how to set the isEditing property of a Textbox using Fabric.js. The Textbox in Fabric.js can be stretched according to requirement. Further, the Textbox can be customized when it comes to initial stroke color, fill color, stroke width, or radius.

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 which will contain the Textbox. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Textbox, set the isEditing property of the Textbox to make it look like it is being edited and render the Textbox on the Canvas as given in the below example.


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

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

  • isEditing: It specifies the boolean value of the isEditing property.

Example: This example uses Fabric.js to set the isEditing property of the Textbox.


    <!-- Adding the FabricJS library -->
    <script src=
    <h1 style="color: green;">
        Fabric.js | Textbox isEditing 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: 500,
            isEditing: true
        // Render the Textbox in canvas
