Fabric.js Textbox textAlign Property

  • Last Updated : 01 Feb, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to set the text alignment of the canvas textbox using FabricJS. The canvas means textbox written is movable, rotatable, resizable, and can be stretched. In this article, we will set the text alignment.

Approach: To make it possible, we are going to use a JavaScript library called FabricJS. After importing the library using CDN, we will create a canvas block in the body tag which will contain our textbox. After this, we will initialize instances of canvas and textbox provided by FabricJS and use the textAlign property to change the text alignment and render the canvas on the textbox as given in the example below.
