Example 1 <svg width="400px" height="200px" style="border:1px solid black; overflow:hidden;"> <rect id="rect1" x="0" y="0" width="50" height="50" fill="red" transform="rotate(45)"></rect> </svg> <script> var rect1 = document.getElementById("rect1"); var reqID, x = 0; function animate(){ x++; rect1.setAttribute( 'x', x ); // rect1.x.baseVal.value += 1.0; // Alternative to the 2 lines above reqID = window.requestAnimationFrame(animate); } reqID = window.requestAnimationFrame(animate); </script> Example 2 <!doctype html> <html> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <style> #circ1{ stroke:#999; stroke-width:.5; } text{ font-size:5px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; } </style> </head> <body> <svg width="400" height="400" style="border:1px solid gray;" viewBox="-40 -40 80 80"> <rect id="rect1" x="-.2" y="-20" width=".3" height="20" fill="red"/> <rect id="rect2" x="-.2" y="-20" width=".6" height="20" fill="black"/> <rect id="rect3" x="-.7" y="-12" width="1.5" height="12" fill="black"/> <circle id="circ1" x="50%" y="50%" r="25" fill="none"/> <circle id="circ2" x="50%" y="50%" r="1.5" fill="#000"/> <text id="txt12" text-anchor="middle" x="0" y="-18">12</text> <text id="txt3" text-anchor="middle" x="20" y="2">3</text> <text id="txt6" text-anchor="middle" x="0" y="21">6</text> <text id="txt9" text-anchor="middle" x="-20" y="2">9</text> </svg> <h1 id="status" style="border:1px solid #000; padding:10px; display:inline;"></h1> <script> var date, secs, mins, hrs, reqID; var rect1 = document.getElementById("rect1"); var status = document.getElementById("status"); function runClock(evt) { date = new Date(); secs = date.getSeconds(); mins = date.getMinutes(); hrs = date.getHours(); if (hrs == 0) { hrs = 12; } else if (hrs > 12) { hrs = hrs - 12; } document.getElementById("status").innerHTML = hrs+" : "+mins+" : "+secs; rect1.setAttribute('transform', 'rotate(' + secs*6 + ')'); rect2.setAttribute('transform', 'rotate(' + mins*6 + ')'); rect3.setAttribute('transform', 'rotate(' + hrs*30 + ')'); } setInterval( runClock, 1000 ); </script> </body> </html> Example 3 <style> svg{ width: 500px; height: 300px; border:1px solid #000; } @keyframes flasher { 0%{ fill:#900; stroke:#F66; } 50%{ fill:#FF8080; stroke:#900; stroke-width:10px;
