Introduction

This short tutorial will provide an introduction to adding some interactivity to dynamic SVG, ie. SVG-SMIL animation

Prerequisites:

  • SVG (Short overview)
  • SVG links (links to various SVG resources)

Attention: You must use a recent HTML5 compliant browser (issued 2011 or later), e.g. FireFox, Chrome, Opera or Safari. These examples will not work with Internet Explorer 9.

Simple click and mouse-over examples

SVG-SMIL allows to use user events such as a mouse click. Something like Button.click allows to refer to a click event on an SVG element that has id=Button

The following SVG code fragment is part of an HTML5 file:

 <svg style="margin-left:50px;border:1px solid blue" height="300" width="300" 
	 xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
	 xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  
      <g id="Button"
	 transform="translate(100,100)">
	<ellipse stroke-width="2" stroke="none" fill="yellow" ry="1cm" rx="2cm" >
	  <animate fill="freeze" dur="1s" begin="Button.click" from="1cm" to="5cm" attributeName="ry"/>
	  <animate fill="freeze" dur="1s" begin="Button.click" from="2cm" to="10cm" attributeName="rx"/>
	</ellipse>
	<text style="font-family:Arial;font-size:18;" alignment-baseline="middle" x="-1cm">Click me !</text>
      </g>      
    </svg>
