radialGradient element | SVGRadialGradientElement object

Defines a radial gradient that provides a smooth transition from one color to another, changing from one color in the center to the second color at the outer edges. The gradient can be used to fill or stroke an object.

Members

The SVGRadialGradientElement object has these types of members:

Properties

The SVGRadialGradientElement object has these properties.

PropertyDescription

className

Gets the names of the classes that are assigned to this object.

cx

Gets or sets the x-coordinate for the center of the largest (that is, outermost) circle of a radial gradient.

cy

Gets or sets the y-coordinate for the center of the largest (that is, outermost) circle of a radial gradient.

externalResourcesRequired

Gets a value that indicates whether referenced resources that are not in the current document are required to correctly render a given element.

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).

fx

Gets or sets the x-coordinate for the focal point of a radial gradient.

fy

Gets or sets the y-coordinate for the focal point of a radial gradient.

gradientTransform

Gets a value that contains the definition of an optional, additional transformation from the gradient coordinate system onto the target coordinate system.

gradientUnits

Gets a value that indicates the type of coordinate system that is used because of a transformation.

href

Gets an xlink:href attribute of an element.

ownerSVGElement

Gets the nearest ancestor svg element.

r

Gets or sets the radius of a radial gradient.

spreadMethod

Gets a value that determines what happens if a gradient starts or ends inside the bounds of a target rectangle.

style

Gets a style object.

viewportElement

Gets the element that established the current viewport.

xmlbase

Gets or sets the base attribute on the element.

 

Standards information

Remarks

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

The radialGradient element inherits properties from its ancestors instead of from the element that references the radialGradient element.

radialGradient elements are never rendered directly. They exist so that you can reference them by using the fill and stroke properties.

The display property does not apply to the radialGradient element. radialGradient elements are not directly rendered even if the display property is set to a value other than none. But radialGradient elements are available for referencing even when the display property on the radialGradient element or any of its ancestors is set to none.

Examples

In the following code example, a radial gradient fills a rectangle. The gradient is defined in a definition and fills the rectangle by referencing the gradient. The gradient runs from magenta to cyan, starting in the center with magenta and working outward to cyan. Copy this sample to a text file and save it with the .html file extension. Run it in Internet Explorer 9 to see the circular magenta to cyan gradient filling the rectangle.

The radial-filled rectangle will look like this:
