How to set the radius of a Circle using FabricJS?

FabricJSJavascriptHTML5 Canvas

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to set the radius of a Circle using FabricJS. We can specify the position, colour, opacity and dimension of a circle object in the canvas, but first we will have to specify a radius for our circle to show up. This can be done by using the radius property.

Syntax

new fabric.Circle({ radius : Number }: 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 radius is a property.

Options Keys

  • radius − This property which accepts a Number value. The value that is assigned, determines the radius of the circle.

Example 1

Passing radius property as key

Let's see an example to set the radius of a circle in FabricJS. In this example, we have assigned the radius property a value of 50 which thus creates a circle with a 50px wide radius. It is possible to add decimal values as well.

      <script>
         // Initiate a canvas instance
         var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
         var circle = new fabric.Circle({
            left: 115,
            top: 50,
            radius: 50,
            fill: "#85bb65"
         });
         canvas.add(circle);
         canvas.setWidth(document.body.scrollWidth);
         canvas.setHeight(250);
      </script>
   </body>
</html>

Example 2

Passing the value as an expression instead of a single numerical value

Instead of passing a single numerical value, it is possible to assign an expression to the radius property as well. In this example, we have used the expression: [(30 * 3) + 10] which evaluates to 100 and hence the circle will have a radius of 100px.

            radius: (30 * 3) + 10,
            fill: "#ffa500"
         });
         canvas.add(circle);
         canvas.setWidth(document.body.scrollWidth);
         canvas.setHeight(250);
