<solidcolor>

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

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.

  <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>
