Fabric.js Textbox scaleX Property
  • Last Updated : 20 Jan, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to set the default horizontal scale of a canvas Textbox using FabricJS. The canvas Textbox means the 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 that will contain the Textbox. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Textbox provided by FabricJS and set the default horizontal scale of the Textbox using scaleX property and render the Textbox on the Canvas as given in the below example.

Syntax:

fabric.Textbox('text', {
   scaleX: number
});

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

  • scaleX: It specifies the default horizontal scale.

Example: This example uses FabricJS to set default horizontal scale of a canvas textbox.

            'A Computer Science Portal', {
            width: 500,
            scaleX: 1.5
        });
  
        // Render the Textbox in canvas 
        canvas.add(text);
        canvas.centerObject(text);
