Subject Re: dynamically adding an element to svgdocument
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2004 14:49:10 GMT
Hi Chandra,

There is one more thing you are missing.  SVG/Batik is a namespace
aware language/processor so you need to take care to use namespaces

SVG_NS = "http://www.w3.org/2000/svg";
XLINK_NS = "http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink";

// Use this for all SVG elements.
Element elt = svgdoc.createElementNS(SVG_NS, "a");

// Use this for "xlink" attributes.
elt.setAttributeNS(XLINK_NS, "xlink:href","http://www.ibm.com/");

// Use either for "unprefixed" attributes (I've been told that
// the ns one is better than the non-ns one but I'm not 100%
// certain I agree there should be a difference).
elt.setAttributeNS(null, "style", "fill:blue");
elt.setAttribute("stroke", "none");
