MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:


« SVG Attribute reference home

the order attribute indicates the size of the matrix to be used by a <feconvolvematrix> element.

The values provided must be <integer>s greater than zero. The first number, <orderX>, indicates the number of columns in the matrix. The second number, <orderY>, indicates the number of rows in the matrix. If <orderY> is not provided, it defaults to <orderX>.

A typical value is order="3". It is recommended that only small values (e.g., 3) be used; higher values may result in very high CPU overhead and usually do not produce results that justify the impact on performance.

If the attribute is not specified, the effect is as if a value of 3 were specified.
