The fr attribute defines the radius of the focal point for the radial gradient.

You can use this attribute with the following SVG elements:


Changing the value of fr

The following example presents two circles: the first one has fr set to 5% while the other circle has fr set to 25%.

<svg viewBox="0 0 480 200" width="420" height="160" xmlns="">
    <radialGradient id="gradient1" cx="0.5" cy="0.5" r="0.5"
        fx="0.35" fy="0.35" fr="5%">
      <stop offset="0%" stop-color="white"/>
      <stop offset="100%" stop-color="darkseagreen"/>
    <radialGradient id="gradient2" cx="0.5" cy="0.5" r="0.5"
        fx="0.35" fy="0.35" fr="25%">
      <stop offset="0%" stop-color="white"/>
      <stop offset="100%" stop-color="darkseagreen"/>

  <circle cx="100" cy="100" r="100" fill="url(#gradient1)" />
  <circle cx="100" cy="100" r="100" fill="url(#gradient2)" style="transform: translateX(240px);" />

The focal point's relationship to (fx, fy)

This example has fr equal to 5% and is representing how the attributes fx and fy (the points labeled as such in the SVG) act as the origin for the focal point of the radial gradient. This focal point is a circle whose radius (the value of fr) defines when the first color stop, in this case the color red, should start transitioning into the other color stop, which in this case is the color blue.

<svg viewBox="0 0 120 120" width="165" height="165" xmlns="">
    <radialGradient id="Gradient" cx="0.5" cy="0.5" r="0.5"
        fx="0.35" fy="0.35" fr="5%">
      <stop offset="0%" stop-color="red"/>
      <stop offset="100%" stop-color="blue"/>

  <rect x="10" y="10" rx="15" ry="15" width="100" height="100"
      fill="url(#Gradient)" stroke="black" stroke-width="2"/>

  <circle cx="60" cy="60" r="50" fill="transparent" stroke="white" stroke-width="2"/>
  <circle cx="45" cy="45" r="2" fill="white" stroke="white"/>
  <circle cx="60" cy="60" r="2" fill="white" stroke="white"/>
  <text x="38" y="40" fill="white" font-family="sans-serif" font-size="10pt">(fx,fy)</text>
  <text x="63" y="63" fill="white" font-family="sans-serif" font-size="10pt">(cx,cy)</text>
