Subject RE: defining a filter
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2002 19:38:40 GMT
Hi, Mark-

I don't use Batik very often, so forgive me if I go astray. However, I
believe that Batik want you to use "setAttributeNS" rather than
"setAttribute." I think that

el.setAttributeNS(null, "filter", "url(#myfilter)")

would work... or perhaps

el.style.setProperty("filter", "url(#myfilter)")

is better.

In any case, I have a simple drawing program that allows the user to create
and apply filters, so dynamic use of filters is definitely possible.

BTW, since a filter is not rendered on its own, you don't necessarily have
to put it into <defs>, though I always do. However, make sure you are
inserting it into the SVG, and not just the document. Something like:

<defs id='filterdefs'></defs>
var MyFilter = document.createElement('filter');

should do the trick.
