This video discusses mandatory attributes for shapes and how to set them.
- [Instructor] All SVG elements,…such as rectangles and circles,…require a basic set of attributes.…These differ by element.…A circle, for example,…must have x y coordinates and a radius…or it simply will not appear on the page.…For a rectangle,…we need x, y, width and height as a minimum.…We could also use rx and ry for rounded corners…but we're not gonna use that now.…Those attributes are optional.…Let's add some mandatory attributes to our rectangles here.…Delete the semi-colon and then dot attr for attribute.…
And the first parameter tells the three…what we want to change.…And the second parameter changes it to a value.…And I'm gonna copy that and paste it four times…because I've got four attributes.…Then we're gonna have…height, width, x and y as our attributes.…For the rectangles, let's give them a height of 200.…And the browser, incidentally, will assume we mean pixels.…And give it a width of 50,…x value of 20, and y value of 100.…Save that.…
Go to Firefox and there we have a bar.…Now you may have been expecting three bars,…
