SVGElement

All of the SVG DOM interfaces that correspond directly to elements in the SVG language derive from the SVGElement interface.

Properties

Also inherits properties from: DocumentAndElementEventHandlers, Element, GlobalEventHandlers, SVGElementInstance

SVGElement.attributeStyleMapRead only

A StylePropertyMap representing the declarations of the element's style attribute.

SVGElement.datasetRead only

A DOMStringMap object which provides a list of key/value pairs of named data attributes which correspond to custom data attributes attached to the element. These can also be defined in SVG using attributes of the form data-*, where * is the key name for the pair. This works just like HTML's HTMLElement.dataset property and HTML's data-* global attribute.

SVGElement.className  Read only

An SVGAnimatedString that reflects the value of the class attribute on the given element, or the empty string if class is not present. This attribute is deprecated and may be removed in a future version of this specification. Authors are advised to use Element.classList instead.

SVGElement.nonce

Returns the cryptographic number used once that is used by Content Security Policy to determine whether a given fetch will be allowed to proceed.

SVGElement.ownerSVGElementRead only

An SVGSVGElement referring to the nearest ancestor <svg> element. null if the given element is the outermost <svg> element.

SVGElement.style

A CSSStyleDeclaration representing the declarations of the element's style attribute.

SVGElement.tabIndex

The position of the element in the tabbing order.

SVGElement.viewportElementRead only

The SVGElement, which established the current viewport. Often, the nearest ancestor <svg> element. null if the given element is the outermost <svg> element.

Methods
