SVG use DOM interface

The SVGUseElement interface corresponds to the <use> element.

Properties

This interface also inherits properties from its parent interface, SVGGraphicsElement and implements properties from SVGURIReference.

SVGUseElement.x Read only
An SVGAnimatedLength corresponding to the x attribute of the given element.
SVGUseElement.y Read only
An SVGAnimatedLength corresponding to the y attribute of the given element.
SVGUseElement.width Read only
An SVGAnimatedLength corresponding to the width attribute of the given element.
SVGUseElement.height Read only
An SVGAnimatedLength corresponding to the height attribute of the given element.
SVGUseElement.instanceRoot Read only
An SVGAnimatedLength corresponding to the instance root of the given element, which is a direct child of the elements shadow root. If the element does not have a shadow tree (for example, because its URI is invalid or because it has been disabled by conditional processing), then getting this attribute returns null.
SVGUseElement.animatedInstanceRoot Read only
An SVGAnimatedLength corresponding to the instance root of the given element, which is a direct child of the elements shadow root. If the element does not have a shadow tree (for example, because its URI is invalid or because it has been disabled by conditional processing), then getting this attribute returns null.
