SVGGeometryElement.isPointInStroke()

The SVGGeometryElement.isPointInStroke() method determines whether a given point is within the stroke shape of an element. Normal hit testing rules apply; the value of the pointer-events property on the element determines whether a point is considered to be within the stroke. The point argument is interpreted as a point in the local coordinate system of the element.

Syntax

isPointInStroke(point)

Parameters

point

An object interpreted as a point in the local coordinate system of the element.

Return value

A boolean indicating whether the given point is within the stroke or not.

Examples

SVG

<svg viewBox="0 0 100 100" width="150" height="150"
    xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <circle id="circle" cx="50" cy="50" r="45"
      fill="white" stroke="black" stroke-width="10"/>

  <circle cx="10" cy="10" r="5" fill="seagreen"/>
  <circle cx="40" cy="30" r="5" fill="seagreen"/>
  <circle cx="83" cy="17" r="5" fill="seagreen"/>
</svg>

JavaScript

const circle = document.getElementById('circle');

try {
  // Point not in circle
  console.log('Point at 10,10:', circle.isPointInStroke(new DOMPoint(10, 10)));

  // Point in circle but not stroke
  console.log('Point at 40,30:', circle.isPointInStroke(new DOMPoint(40, 30)));

  // Point in circle stroke
  console.log('Point at 83,17:', circle.isPointInStroke(new DOMPoint(83, 17)));
  
} catch(e) {
  // for the browsers that still support the deprecated interface SVGPoint
  const svg = document.getElementsByTagName('svg')[0];
  const point = svg.createSVGPoint();

  // Point not in circle
  point.x = 10;
  point.y = 10;
  console.log('Point at 10,10:', circle.isPointInStroke(point));

  // Point in circle but not stroke
  point.x = 40;
  point.y = 30;
  console.log('Point at 40,30:', circle.isPointInStroke(point));

  // Point in circle stroke
  point.x = 83;
  point.y = 17;
  console.log('Point at 83,17:', circle.isPointInStroke(point));
}
