SVGPathElement Methods

The SVGPathElement type exposes the following members.

Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodAddEventListener(String, IEventListener)

The addEventListener() method of the EventTarget interface sets up a function that will be called whenever the specified event is delivered to the target.

It works by adding a function, or an object that implements EventListener, to the list of event listeners for the specified event type on the EventTarget on which it's called. If the function or object, is already in the list of event listeners for this target, they are not added a second time.

(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodAddEventListener(String, DOMEventHandler, Boolean)

The addEventListener() method of the EventTarget interface sets up a function that will be called whenever the specified event is delivered to the target.

It works by adding a function, or an object that implements EventListener, to the list of event listeners for the specified event type on the EventTarget on which it's called. If the function or object, is already in the list of event listeners for this target, they are not added a second time.

(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodAddEventListener(String, IEventListener, Boolean)

The addEventListener() method of the EventTarget interface sets up a function that will be called whenever the specified event is delivered to the target.

It works by adding a function, or an object that implements EventListener, to the list of event listeners for the specified event type on the EventTarget on which it's called. If the function or object, is already in the list of event listeners for this target, they are not added a second time.

(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodAppendChild

The appendChild() method of the Node interface adds a node to the end of the list of children of a specified parent node. If the given child is a reference to an existing node in the document, appendChild() moves it from its current position to the new position (there is no requirement to remove the node from its parent node before appending it to some other node).

This means that a node can't be in two points of the document simultaneously. So if the node already has a parent, the node is first removed, then appended at the new position. The Node.cloneNode() method can be used to make a copy of the node before appending it under the new parent. Copies made with cloneNode are not be automatically kept in sync.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodAttachShadow
Creates shadow root and attaches it to current element.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodCloneNode

The cloneNode() method of the Node interface returns a duplicate of the node on which this method was called. Its parameter controls if the subtree contained in a node is also cloned or not.

Cloning a node copies all of its attributes and their values, including intrinsic (inline) listeners. It does not copy event listeners added using addEventListener() or those assigned to element properties (e.g., node.onclick = someFunction). Additionally, for a <canvas> element, the painted image is not copied.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodCloneNode(Boolean)

The cloneNode() method of the Node interface returns a duplicate of the node on which this method was called. Its parameter controls if the subtree contained in a node is also cloned or not.

Cloning a node copies all of its attributes and their values, including intrinsic (inline) listeners. It does not copy event listeners added using addEventListener() or those assigned to element properties (e.g., node.onclick = someFunction). Additionally, for a <canvas> element, the painted image is not copied.

Public methodDispatchEvent

Dispatches an Event at the specified EventTarget, (synchronously) invoking the affected EventListeners in the appropriate order. The normal event processing rules (including the capturing and optional bubbling phase) also apply to events dispatched manually with dispatchEvent().

(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodDispose
Performs application-defined tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Protected methodDispose(Boolean)
Releases unmanaged and - optionally - managed resources.
(Inherited from SVGGeometryElement.)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Finalizes an instance of the Node class.
(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodGetAttribute
Retrieves an attribute value by name.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodGetAttributeNode
Retrieves an attribute node by name.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodGetAttributeNodeNS
Retrieves an Attr node by local name and namespace URI.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodGetAttributeNS
Retrieves an attribute value by local name and namespace URI.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodGetBBox
Returns the tight bounding box in current user space (i.e., after application of the ‘transform’ attribute, if any) on the geometry of all contained graphics elements, exclusive of stroking, clipping, masking and filter effects). Note that getBBox must return the actual bounding box at the time the method was called, even in case the element has not yet been rendered.
(Inherited from SVGGraphicsElement.)
Public methodGetCTM
Returns the transformation matrix from current user units (i.e., after application of the ‘transform’ attribute, if any) to the viewport coordinate system for the nearestViewportElement.
(Inherited from SVGGraphicsElement.)
Public methodCode exampleGetElementsByClassName

Returns HTMLCollection object containing all the elements within element that have all the classes specified in argument.

(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodCode exampleGetElementsByTagName

Returns HTMLCollection object containing all elements with a given tag name, in document order.

(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodCode exampleGetElementsByTagNameNS

Returns HTMLCollection object containing all elements with a given local name and namespace URI string in document order.

(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as a hash function for a particular type.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetPlatformType

This method is used to retrieve the ECMAScript object .

(Inherited from DOMObject.)
Public methodGetPointAtLength
Returns the (x,y) coordinate in user space which is distance units along the path, utilizing the user agent's distance-along-a-path algorithm.
(Inherited from SVGGeometryElement.)
Public methodGetScreenCTM
Returns the transformation matrix from current user units (i.e., after application of the ‘transform’ attribute, if any) to the parent user agent's notice of a "pixel". For display devices, ideally this represents a physical screen pixel. For other devices or environments where physical pixel sizes are not known, then an algorithm similar to the CSS2 definition of a "pixel" can be used instead. Note that null is returned if this element is not hooked into the document tree. This method would have been more aptly named as getClientCTM, but the name getScreenCTM is kept for historical reasons.
(Inherited from SVGGraphicsElement.)
Public methodGetTotalLength
Returns the user agent's computed value for the total length of the path using the user agent's distance-along-a-path algorithm, as a distance in the current user coordinate system.
(Inherited from SVGGeometryElement.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodHasAttribute
Returns true when an attribute with a given name is specified on this element or has a default value, false otherwise.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodHasAttributeNS
Returns true when an attribute with a given local name and namespace URI is specified on this element or has a default value, false otherwise.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodHasAttributes
Returns whether this node (if it is an element) has any attributes
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodHasChildNodes

The hasChildNodes() method of the Node interface returns a boolean value indicating whether the given Node has child nodes or not.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodInsertBefore

The insertBefore() method of the Node interface inserts a node before a reference node as a child of a specified parent node.

If the given node already exists in the document, insertBefore() moves it from its current position to the new position. (That is, it will automatically be removed from its existing parent before appending it to the specified new parent.)

This means that a node cannot be in two locations of the document simultaneously.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodIsDefaultNamespace

The isDefaultNamespace() method of the Node interface accepts a namespace URI as an argument. It returns a boolean value that is true if the namespace is the default namespace on the given node and false if not.

Note: The default namespace of an HTML element is always "". For a SVG element, it is set by the xmlns attribute.
(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodIsEqualNode

The isEqualNode() method of the Node interface tests whether two nodes are equal. Two nodes are equal when they have the same type, defining characteristics (for elements, this would be their ID, number of children, and so forth), its attributes match, and so on. The specific set of data points that must match varies depending on the types of the nodes.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodIsSameNode

The isSameNode() method of the Node interface is a legacy alias the for the === strict equality operator. That is, it tests whether two nodes are the same (in other words, whether they reference the same object).

Note: There is no need to use isSameNode(); instead use the === strict equality operator.
(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodLookupNamespaceURI

The lookupNamespaceURI() method of the Node interface takes a prefix as parameter and returns the namespace URI associated with it on the given node if found (and null if not).

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodLookupPrefix

The lookupPrefix() method of the Node interface returns a String containing the prefix for a given namespace URI, if present, and null if not. When multiple prefixes are possible, the first prefix is returned.

(Inherited from Node.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodNormalize

Puts all Text nodes in the full depth of the sub-tree underneath this Node, including attribute nodes, into a "normal" form where only structure (e.g., elements, comments, processing instructions, CDATA sections, and entity references) separates Text nodes, i.e., there are neither adjacent Text nodes nor empty Text nodes. This can be used to ensure that the DOM view of a document is the same as if it were saved and re-loaded, and is useful when operations (such as XPointer [XPointer] lookups) that depend on a particular document tree structure are to be used. If the parameter "normalize-characters" of the DOMConfiguration object attached to the Node.ownerDocument is true, this method will also fully normalize the characters of the Text nodes.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodQuerySelector
Returns the first Element in document, which match selector
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodQuerySelectorAll
Returns a NodeList of all the Elements in document, which match selector
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodRemove

(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodRemoveAttribute
Removes an attribute by name.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodRemoveAttributeNode
Removes the specified attribute node.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodRemoveAttributeNS
Removes an attribute by local name and namespace URI.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodRemoveChild

The removeChild() method of the Node interface removes a child node from the DOM and returns the removed node.

Note: As long as a reference is kept on the removed child, it still exists in memory, but is no longer part of the DOM. It can still be reused later in the code. If the return value of removeChild() is not stored, and no other reference is kept, it will be automatically deleted from memory after a short time.
(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodRemoveEventListener(String, IEventListener)

This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an is removed from an while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.

(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodRemoveEventListener(String, DOMEventHandler, Boolean)

This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an is removed from an while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.

(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodRemoveEventListener(String, IEventListener, Boolean)

This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an is removed from an while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.

(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodReplaceChild

Replaces the child node oldChild with newChild in the list of children, and returns the oldChild node. If newChild is a DocumentFragment object, oldChild is replaced by all of the DocumentFragment children, which are inserted in the same order. If the newChild is already in the tree, it is first removed.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public methodSetAttribute
Adds a new attribute. If an attribute with that name is already present in the element, its value is changed to be that of the value parameter
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodSetAttributeNode
Adds a new attribute node. If an attribute with that name (nodeName) is already present in the element, it is replaced by the new one.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodSetAttributeNodeNS
Adds a new attribute. If an attribute with that local name and that namespace URI is already present in the element, it is replaced by the new one.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodSetAttributeNS
Adds a new attribute. If an attribute with the same local name and namespace URI is already present on the element, its prefix is changed to be the prefix part of the qualifiedName, and its value is changed to be the value parameter.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodSetIdAttribute
If the parameter isId is true, this method declares the specified attribute to be a user-determined ID attribute.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodSetIdAttributeNode
If the parameter isId is true, this method declares the specified attribute to be a user-determined ID attribute.
(Inherited from Element.)
Public methodSetIdAttributeNS
