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 HTML canvas 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 move cursor value of canvas Textbox using moveCursor property and render the Textbox on the Canvas as given in the below example.


fabric.Textbox('text', {
   moveCursor: string

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

  • moveCursor: It specifies that the cursor value when moving the canvas object.
