HTML – Hide the broken icon when the is not yet loaded

Updated @ 2015-10-12: The following snippet could get rid of the broken icon without using CSS and JS.

<svg class="card__image" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" viewBox="0 0 1920 500" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid slice">
  <image width="1920" height="500" xlink:href="" ng-href="{{ image.href }}"></image>
</svg>

 

Thanks Wouter De Loose.

 

i have the following <svg> in an AngularJS template and the image source would be assigned by the controller which loaded the image info from a .json file.

<svg class="card__image" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" viewBox="0 0 1920 500" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid slice">
  <image width="1920" height="500" xlink:href="{{ image.href }}"></image>
</svg>

 

It works fine on my local machine but when i put it on a webserver. There would be a flash of the broken image before the image is loaded. Continue reading HTML – Hide the broken icon when the is not yet loaded

SVG clip-path doesn’t work in html5mode

I am working on an AngularJS project with html5mode enabled. I would like to implement the Card Expansion effect written on Codrops. Everything works fine but the SVG clip-path animation doesn’t work.

This is because i have ended the <base> tag in the index.html for the html5mode so the clip-path value has to be an absolute path. i.e.

<!-- fail with base tag -->
<image clip-path="url(#clipPath1)" width="1920" height="500" xlink:href="a.jpg"></image>

Change to

<!-- it works! -->
<image clip-path="url(http://localhost:10000/project#clipPath1)" width="1920" height="500" xlink:href="a.jpg"></image>

 

If you want it to work on IE, please refer to the post in the reference.

Done =)
