<set>

The SVG <set> element provides a simple means of just setting the value of an attribute for a specified duration.

It supports all attribute types, including those that cannot reasonably be interpolated, such as string and boolean values. For attributes that can be reasonably be interpolated, the <animate> is usually preferred.

Note: The <set> element is non-additive. The additive and accumulate attributes are not allowed, and will be ignored if specified.

Example

<svg viewBox="0 0 10 10" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <style>
    rect { cursor: pointer }
    .round { rx: 5px; fill: green; }
  </style>

  <rect id="me" width="10" height="10">
    <set attributeName="class" to="round" begin="me.click" dur="2s" />
  </rect>
</svg>
