SVG Patterns

SVG Patterns

The <pattern> SVG element defines a graphics object which can be redrawn at repeated x and y-coordinate intervals ("tiled") to cover an area.

In this example, we will create a chess like pattern by using <pattern> SVG attribute.

Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en-US"> <body> <svg width="100%" height="600"> <pattern id="patt" x="0" y="0" width="150" height="150" patternUnits="userSpaceOnUse" > <rect x="0" width="75" height="75" y="0"/> <rect x="75" width="75" height="75" y="75"/> </pattern> <rect x="0" y="0" width="100%" height="100%" fill="url(#patt)" /> </svg> </body> </html>
