New Feature Request for 1.5: Inline SVG animation with animate() instead of SMIL
|Reported by:||WebManWlkg||Owned by:||WebManWlkg|
If an element is Inline SVG, such as you might select with $("svg rect"), animate() should use this.setAttribute("x") instead of this.style.left. And this.setAttribute("y") instead of this.style.top. And this.setAttribute("height") instead of this.style.height. And this.setAttribute("width") instead of this.style.width. There could be more, but those 4 attributes would be the biggies to implement first.
This feature would allow Inline SVG animation in advance of browser SMIL support. Even if a browser supports SMIL (such as Firefox 4 beta), animating through jQuery would also allow the animation that obey the rich collection of jQuery easing functions.
This form asks for a username. The one I've given, WebManWlkg, is my plugins.jquery.com username. I don't know if the same logins apply across jQuery sites. Anyway, that's how you can get back to me, if necessary.
