SVG <feSpotLight> Element
  • Last Updated : 27 Oct, 2020

SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic. It can be used to make graphics and animations like in HTML canvas.
The <feSpotLight> SVG defines a light source which results in a spotlight effect. It defines a spotlight whose light is directed at a specific point and it only lights a limited area.

Syntax:

<feSpotLight x="" y="" z="" pointsAtX="" pointsAtY="" 
    pointsAtZ="" specularExponent="" limitingConeAngle="" />

Attributes:

  • x, y, z:It tells the corresponding x, y, z in co-ordinate system.
  • pointsAtX, pointsAtY, pointsAtZ: X, Y, Z location of the point where the light is shining on.
  • specularExponent: It tells the focus of light on a single point. Default value is 1.
  • limitingConeAngle: It tells the angle in degrees between two lines i.e. spot light axis and spot light cone.

Example 1:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
    <svg width="200" height="200">
        <defs>
            <filter id="spotlight">
                <feSpecularLighting result="spec3" 
                    in="blur3" specularConstant="1.2" 
                    specularExponent="7"
                    lighting-color="#FFF">
  
                    <feSpotLight x="400" y="400" 
                        z="900" limitingConeAngle="9" />
                </feSpecularLighting>
  
                <feComposite in="SourceGraphic" 
                    in2="spotlight" operator="out" 
                    k1="0" k2="1" k3="1" k4="0" />
            </filter>
        </defs>
  
        <rect x="40" y="40" width="100" height="100" 
            style="stroke: #000000;
                fill: lightgreen;
                filter: url(#spotlight);" />
  
        <rect x="40" y="40" width="100" height="100" 
            style="stroke: #000000; 
                fill: green; 
                filter: url(#spotlight);" />
  
        <g fill="#FFFFFF" stroke="black" font-size="10" 
            font-family="Verdana">
              
            <text x="50" y="90">GeeksForGeeks</text>
    </svg>
</body>
  
</html>
