SVGGraphicsElement

The SVGGraphicsElement interface represents SVG elements whose primary purpose is to directly render graphics into a group.

Note: This interface was introduced in SVG 2 and replaces the SVGLocatable and SVGTransformable interfaces from SVG 1.1.

Properties

This interface also inherits properties from its parent, SVGElement.

SVGGraphicsElement.transform Read only
An SVGAnimatedTransformList reflecting the computed value of the transform property and its corresponding transform attribute of the given element.

Methods

This interface also inherits methods from its parent, SVGElement.

SVGGraphicsElement.getBBox()
Returns a DOMRect representing the computed bounding box of the current element.
SVGGraphicsElement.getCTM()
Returns a DOMMatrix representing the matrix that transforms the current element's coordinate system to its SVG viewport's coordinate system.
SVGGraphicsElement.getScreenCTM()
Returns a DOMMatrix representing the matrix that transforms the current element's coordinate system to the coordinate system of the SVG viewport for the SVG document fragment.

1. The getBBox() method returns an empty DOMRect when there is no fill (bug 1019326).

2. This method doesn't work for <textPath> and <tspan> elements (bug 937268).
