HTML5Web DevelopmentFront End Technology

SVG is a markup language based on XML that is used to describe two-dimensional vector graphics.SVG is essentially what HTML is to text when it comes to visuals.

The <ellipse> element in SVG is used to make ellipses. The cx and cy characteristics are used to centre the ellipse.

Syntax

<ellipse> 
   cx="x-axis co-ordinate" 
   cy="y-axis co-ordinate" 
   rx="radius x-axis" 
   ry="radius y-axis" 
</ellipse>

Attributes

  • The cx attribute specifies the ellipse's center's x coordinate.
  • The centre of the ellipse's y coordinate is specified by the cy attribute.
  • The horizontal radius is specified by the rx attribute.
  • The vertical radius is determined by the ry property.

Following are the examples

Example 1

Using svg <ellipse>

In the following example we are using svg to draw an ellipse.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>ellipse</title> </head> <body> <svg height="200" width="450"> <ellipse cx="110" cy="80" rx="90" ry="50" fill="lime"/> </svg> </body> </html>

When the script gets executed, it will generate the output of an ellipse drawn on the webpage filled with green.

Example 2

Adding stroke Property

In the following example we are using svg <ellipse> along with the stroke.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>ellipse</title> </head> <body> <svg height="200" width="450"> <ellipse cx="110" cy="80" rx="90" ry="50" style="fill:slateblue;stroke:lime;stroke-width:2"/> </svg> </body> </html>

On executing the above script, it will generate the output consisting of an ellipse filled with blue along with stroke borders drawn on the webpage.

Example 3
