Overview Table

DOM Interface SVGElement

Examples

In the following code example, the polyline element is used to draw a gold polyline inside an inline SVG element. Copy this sample to a text file and save it with the .html file extension. Run it in Internet Explorer 9 to see a gold polyline.

It should look like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
  <head></head>
  <body>
    <svg width="400" height="400">
      <polyline points="50,50 150,120 100,220 200,150" style="fill:white; stroke:gold; stroke-width:10" />
    </svg>
  </body>
</html>

Notes

Remarks

Note: In addition to the attributes, properties, events, methods, and styles listed above, SVG elements also inherent core HTML attributes, properties, events, methods, and styles.

Typically, polyline elements define open shapes. Note: You cannot provide an odd number of coordinates.

Standards information

Members

The SVGPolylineElement object has these events:

  • onload: Occurs when the browser has fully parsed the element and all of its descendants.

The SVGPolylineElement object has these methods:

  • getBBox: Gets the bounding box, in current user space, of the geometry of all contained graphics elements.
  • getCTM: Gets the transformation matrix that transforms from the current user units to the viewport coordinate system for the nearestViewportElement object.
  • getScreenCTM: Gets the transformation matrix from the current user units to the screen coordinate system.
  • getTransformToElement: Gets the transformation matrix that transforms from the user coordinate system on the current element to the user coordinate system on the specified target element.
  • hasExtension: Determines if the specified extension is supported.

The SVGPolylineElement object has these properties:

  • animatedPoints: Gets or sets the animated contents of the points attribute.
  • className: Gets the names of the classes that are assigned to this object.
  • clipPath: Sets or retrieves a reference to the SVG graphical object that will be used as the clipping path.
  • externalResourcesRequired: Gets a value that indicates whether referenced resources that are not in the current document are required to correctly render a given element.
  • farthestViewportElement: Gets a value that represents the farthest ancestor svg element.
  • fill: Sets or retrieves a value that indicates the color to paint the interior of the given graphical element.
  • fillOpacity: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies the opacity of the painting operation that is used to paint the interior of the current object.
  • fillRule: Sets or retrieves a value that indicates the algorithm that is to be used to determine what parts of the canvas are included inside the shape.
  • focusable: Determines if an element can acquire keyboard focus (that is, receive keyboard events) and be a target for field-to-field navigation actions (such as when a user presses the Tab key).
  • marker: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies the marker symbol that is used for all vertices on the given path element or basic shape.
  • markerEnd: Sets or retrieves a value that defines the arrowhead or polymarker that is drawn at the final vertex of a given path element or basic shape.
  • markerMid: Sets or retrieves a value that defines the arrowhead or polymarker that is drawn at every other vertex (that is, every vertex except the first and last) of a given path element or basic shape.
  • markerStart: Sets or retrieves a value that defines the arrowhead or polymarker that is drawn at the first vertex of a given path element or basic shape.
  • mask: Sets or retrieves a value that indicates a SVG mask.
  • nearestViewportElement: Gets a value that indicates which element established the current viewport.
  • ownerSVGElement: Gets the nearest ancestor svg element.
  • pointerEvents: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies under what circumstances a given graphics element can be the target element for a pointer event in SVG.
  • points: Gets or sets the static contents of the points attribute.
  • requiredExtensions: Gets a white space-delimited list of required language extensions.
  • requiredFeatures: Gets or sets a white space-delimited list of feature strings.
  • stroke: Sets or retrieves a value that indicates the color to paint along the outline of a given graphical element.
  • strokeDasharray: Sets or retrieves one or more values that indicate the pattern of dashes and gaps used to stroke paths.
  • strokeDashoffset: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies the distance into the dash pattern to start the dash.
  • strokeLinecap: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies the shape to be used at the end of open subpaths when they are stroked.
  • strokeLinejoin: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies the shape to be used at the corners of paths or basic shapes when they are stroked.
  • strokeMiterlimit: Sets or retrieves a value that indicates the limit on the ratio of the length of miter joins (as specified in the strokeLinejoin property).
  • strokeOpacity: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies the opacity of the painting operation that is used to stroke the current object.
  • strokeWidth: Sets or retrieves a value that specifies the width of the stroke on the current object.
  • style: Gets a style object.
  • systemLanguage: Gets or sets a comma-separated list of language names.
  • transform: Gets the value of a transform attribute.
  • viewportElement: Gets the element that established the current viewport.
  • xmlbase: Gets or sets the base attribute on the element.
  • xmllang: Gets or sets a value that specifies the language that is used in the contents and attribute values of an element.
  • xmlspace: Gets or sets a value that indicates whether white space is preserved in character data.
