id attribute to svg group object.

Post by Mala » Wed Jan 29, 2014 2:56 pm

Hi,
I have been working on jFreeSVG for some time.
We can give id attributes as a rendering hints to svg elements like <rect>< line> using SVGHints.KEY_ELEMENT_ID.
But as I see in

Code: Select all

public void drawString(String str, float x, float y)

there is no call to appendOptionalElementIDFromHint(this.sb) method of SVGGRaphics2D.
So group object element do not have any id attribute ?
Is there any way to have group attribute an id attribute ?


Thanks in advance.

It's not possible in the current library. Have you tried wrapping the text inside of a rect (perhaps with 0 width stroke) that does have an id?

A general solution is to create two new hints. KEY_GROUP_START begins a new group (with optional id) and KEY_GROUP_END closes a group. This allows nested groups which has proven to be very useful.

That's a bug, thanks for making me aware of it. I've committed the fix for inclusion in the upcoming 1.7 release.

Can you please provide samples how to add an id in java code to have it added for <rect, <circle ... and for group <g?
