The stroke-dashoffset property is used to set the location along an SVG path where the dash pattern of a stroke will begin. A higher value means that the dash will start at a further location. 

Syntax:

stroke-dasharray: <length> | <percentage>

Property Values:

  • length: It is used to set the offset in length units. The values are resolved on the basis of the path length of the element. 
  • percentage: It is used to set the offset in percentage values. The values are resolved as a percentage of the current viewport. 

Example 1: Setting the offset of the dashes in lines.

            stroke-dasharray: 40;

            stroke-dashoffset: 15px;
 
            stroke: red;
            stroke-dasharray: 40;
            stroke-width: 20px;
