Subject RE: trouble setting attributes with SVGGraphics2D
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2001 16:18:31 GMT

I had a similar problem. The fix is a very simple line:

    SVGGraphics2D g = new SVGGraphics2D(doc);
    g.setSVGCanvasSize(new Dimension(width,height));

Hope this helps.

Subject: trouble setting attributes with SVGGraphics2D


I'm having trouble setting width and height attributes while using
SVGGraphics2D.  It seems that the default width and height get set to
"2147483647" when using SVGGraphics2D.  When I try to set these
attributes by manipulating the DOM I get strange results.  In the
following code, I attempt to set the attributes by hand.  However when
run (with Batik 1.0, JDK 1.3.0, RedHat Linux 7.1) my changes never
appear in the resulting XML output.

import java.io.*;
import java.awt.*;
import org.apache.batik.svggen.SVGGraphics2D;
import org.apache.batik.dom.svg.SVGDOMImplementation;
import org.w3c.dom.DOMImplementation;
import org.w3c.dom.*;

public class SVGTest {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    DOMImplementation impl =
    String svgNS = SVGDOMImplementation.SVG_NAMESPACE_URI;
    Document doc = impl.createDocument(svgNS, "svg", null);

    // get the root element (the svg element)
    Element svgRoot = doc.getDocumentElement();

    // set the width and height attribute on the root svg element
    svgRoot.setAttributeNS(svgNS, "width", "1024");
    svgRoot.setAttributeNS(svgNS, "height", "768");

    // Create an instance of the SVG Generator
    SVGGraphics2D g = new SVGGraphics2D(doc);

    // set background to white
    g.fill(new Rectangle(0, 0, 1024, 768));
    g.fill(new Rectangle(100, 100, 100, 100));

    try {
      FileWriter writer = new FileWriter(new File("svgtest.xml"));
      g.stream(writer, false);
    } catch (IOException e) {



Also, I notice that I need to explicitly call System.exit(), else my
main never exits... are there lingering threads in the batik code?

Thanks for your help.

PS: I'd like to say thanks to all the Batik developers; this is a
great package!  I've been meaning to send a "thank you" email to you
guys ever since the JavaOne talk back in June.  Great job!
