How to hide the controlling corners of a Circle using FabricJS?

FabricJSJavascriptHTML5 Canvas

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to hide the controlling corners of a Circle using FabricJS. Circle is one of the various shapes provided by FabricJS. In order to create a circle, we have to create an instance of fabric.Circle class and add it to the canvas. The controlling corners of an object allow us to increase or decrease its scale, stretch or change its position. We can customize our controlling corners in many ways such as adding a specific colour to it, changing its size etc. However, we can also hide them using the hasControls property.

Syntax

new fabric.Circle({ hasControls: Boolean }: Object)

Parameters

  • options (optional) − This parameter is an Object which provides additional customizations to our circle. Using this parameter, properties such as colour, cursor, stroke width and a lot of other properties can be changed related to the object of which hasControls is a property.

Options Keys

  • hasControls − This property accepts a Boolean value that allows us to display or hide the controlling corners of an actively selected object. Its default value is True.

Example 1

Default appearance of controlling corners

Let's see a code that shows the default appearance of the controlling corners. Since the default value of hasControls property is True, the controlling corners will not be hidden.

      <p>Select the object and observe its controlling corners. This is the default appearnce. Even though we have not applied the <b>hasControls</b> property, it is by default set to True. </p>
      <canvas id="canvas"></canvas>

      <script>
         // Initiate a canvas instance
         var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
         var circle = new fabric.Circle({
            left: 215,
            top: 100,
            fill: "white",
            radius: 50,
            stroke: "#c154c1",
            strokeWidth: 5
         });

         // Adding it to the canvas
         canvas.add(circle);
         canvas.setWidth(document.body.scrollWidth);
         canvas.setHeight(250);
      </script>
   </body>
</html>

Example 2

Passing hasControls as key and assigning a "false" value to it

In this example, we will see how the controlling corners are hidden by using the hasControls property. We need to assign the hasControls key a 'false' value. By doing that, the controlling corners will be hidden.

   <body>
      <h2>Hiding the controlling corners of a circle using FabricJS</h2>
      <p>Select the object and you will notice that the controlling corners are no longer there. Here we have set <b>hasControls</b> to False.</p>
      <canvas id="canvas"></canvas>

      <script>
         // Initiate a canvas instance
         var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
         var circle = new fabric.Circle({
            left: 215,
            top: 100,
            fill: "white",
            radius: 50,
            stroke: "#c154c1",
            strokeWidth: 5,
            hasControls: false
         });

         // Adding it to the canvas
         canvas.add(circle);
         canvas.setWidth(document.body.scrollWidth);
         canvas.setHeight(250);
      </script>
   </body>
