SVGPathElement.pathLength

Deprecated since SVG 2
This feature has been removed from the Web standards. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Avoid using it and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The SVGPathElement.pathLength property reflects the pathLength attribute and returns the total length of the path, in user units.

Note: In SVG 2 this property was moved to the SVGGeometryElement interface, from which the SVGPathElement inherits it.

Syntax

var pathLength = someElement.pathLength;
