In this article, we are going to see how to set the horizontally flip of a canvas triangle in FabricJS. The canvas triangle means the triangle is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. Further, the triangle 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 triangle. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Triangle provided by FabricJS and use the flipX property to horizontally flip the triangle and render the Canvas on the Triangle as given in the example below.


    width: number,
    height: number,
    flipX: boolean

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • width: It specifies the width of triangle.
  • height: It specifies the height of triangle.
  • flipX: It specifies the horizontally flip of a canvas object.

Example: This example uses FabricJS to set the horizontally flip of a canvas triangle.
