<solidcolor>

Deprecated

This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. 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 <solidcolor> SVG element lets authors define a single color for use in multiple places in an SVG document. It is also useful as away of animating a palette colors.

Note: This is an experimental technology, and not yet implemented in browsers. A workaround is to use a <linearGradient> with only one color stop. This is less elegant, and unlike <solidcolor>, cannot itself be used in the definition of gradients.

Example

SVG

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 300 200" height="150">
  <defs>
    <!-- solidColor is experimental. -->
    <solidcolor id="myColor" solid-color="gold" solid-opacity="0.8"/>

    <!-- linearGradient with a single color stop is a less elegant way to
         achieve the same effect, but it works in current browsers. -->
    <linearGradient id="myGradient">
      <stop offset="0" stop-color="green" />
    </linearGradient>
  </defs>

  <text x="10" y="20">Circles colored with solidColor</text>
  <circle cx="150" cy="65" r="35" stroke-width="2" stroke="url(#myColor)"
      fill="white"/>
  <circle cx="50" cy="65" r="35" fill="url(#myColor)"/>

  <text x="10" y="120">Circles colored with linearGradient</text>
  <circle cx="150" cy="165" r="35" stroke-width="2" stroke="url(#myGradient)"
      fill="white"/>
  <circle cx="50" cy="165" r="35" fill="url(#myGradient)"/>
