  • Last Updated : 07 Aug, 2020

The SVG offers several stroke properties to be applied to the SVG element. There are lots of properties under stroke properties which can be applied any kind of lines, text, and outlines of elements like a circle.

Syntax:

<elementName stroke="stroke color"
      stroke-width="Width of the stroke"
      stroke-linecap="Ending style to a stroke"
      stroke-dasharray="make a dashed stroke">

Property value: 

  • stroke: set the stroke to an element.
  • stroke-width: set the stroke width of an element.
  • stroke-linecap: sets the ending stroke style.
  • stroke-dasharrray: set the style os a stroke such as dashed stroke.

Few examples are given below:
