SVG Polyline

SVG Polyline – <polyline>

Example 1

The <polyline> element is used to create any shape that consists of only straight lines (that is connected at several points):

Here is the SVG code:


<svg height="200" width="500">
  <polyline points="20,20 40,25 60,40 80,120 120,140 200,180"
  style="fill:none;stroke:black;stroke-width:3" />

Code explanation:

  • The points attribute defines the list of points (pairs of x and y coordinates) required to draw the polyline

Example 2

Another example with only straight lines:

Here is the SVG code:


<svg height="180" width="500">
  <polyline points="0,40 40,40 40,80 80,80 80,120 120,120 120,160"
  style="fill:white;stroke:red;stroke-width:4" />
