In this article, we are going to see how to remove the borders 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 hasBorders property to remove borders and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the example below.

 fabric.Text(text, hasBorders: boolean); 

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

  • text: It specifies the text to be written.
  • hasBorders: It specifies whether to enable or disable border, enabled by default.

Program: This example uses FabricJS to remove borders of canvas-like text. Note that you have to click on the text to see if its borders are visible or not.
