In this article, we are going to see how to add overline text-decoration to a canvas-like text using FabricJS. The canvas means text written is movable, rotatable, resizable and can be stretched. Further, the text itself cannot be edited like a textbox.
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 text. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Text provided by FabricJS and use the overline property to add overline and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the example below.


 fabric.Text(text, overline: boolean); 

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

  • text: It specifies the text to be written.
  • overline: It specifies whether to enable overline text decoration.

Program: We can use FabricJS to set the add overline to a canvas-like text as given below.
