In this article, we are going to see how to change the border-color of a canvas-like text using FabricJS. The canvas means text written is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. 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 borderColor property to add color to the text borders and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the example below. Further, remember that you have to click on the text to see the border of the text.

 fabric.Text(text, borderColor: String); 

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

  • text: It specifies the text to be written.
  • borderColor: It specifies the color of the border.

Program: This example uses FabricJS to change border-color of canvas-like text.


<!DOCTYPE html>
        change border-color of a canvas-type text
    <!-- Loading the FabricJS library -->
    <script src=
    <canvas id="canvas" width="600" height="200"
            style="border:1px solid #000000;">
        // Create a new instance of Canvas
        var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
        // Create a new Textbox instance
        var text = new fabric.Text('GeeksforGeeks', {
            borderColor: 'red',
        // Render the Textbox on Canvas
