Can't use setAttribute() on SVG Animation DOM?



I'm trying to create an SVG animation by setting the "value" like so:


e = (SVGAnimationElement) doc.getElementById("linearRot"); 


e.setAttribute("values", values);


however I am getting the SVGException "Unimplemented"... is that really so?


I tried setting the trait first but noticed my new values were being ignored.


I also tried setting "from" and "to" attributes with same error.


Is setting any animation tags unimplemented (unless using Plazmic)?



<animateTransform id="linearRot" attributeName="transform" attributeType="XML" type="rotate" calcMode="linear" values="0 100 100; 1000 100 100; 1700 100 100; 2340 100 100" keyTimes="0;.25;.55;1"  begin="1s" dur="10s" fill="freeze" />

What BlackBerry Smartphone model and BlackBerry handheld software version are you testing on?  You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.

Re: Can't use setAttribute() on SVG Animation DOM?

I'm getting the same issue, I have an .svg that references an image, at runtime i want to change the x value of the image to centre it using something like Display.getWidth()/2, code as follows:



protected SVGImage _image;
protected SVGAnimator _animator;
protected Field _field;

SVGScreen() {
try {
InputStream inputStream = getClass().getResourceAsStream("/mylogo.svg");
_image = (SVGImage) SVGImage.createImage(inputStream, null);

Document doc = (Document) _image.getDocument();
SVGElement element = (SVGElement) doc.getElementById("logo");
try {
element.setAttribute("x", "" + Display.getWidth() / 2);
} catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println("Error setting attribute: " + e.toString());

_animator = SVGAnimator.createAnimator(_image, "net.rim.device.api.ui.Field");
_field = (net.rim.device.api.ui.Field) _animator.getTargetComponent();

} catch (IOException ex) {
System.out.println("Could not create SVG image:" + ex.toString());


Error setting attribute: org.w3c.dom.svg.SVGException: Unimplemented!


 Using 4.6 JDE with the Bold 9000 emulator (v4.6.0.92).

Re: Can't use setAttribute() on SVG Animation DOM?

nevermind, solved my own question, using:



element.setFloatTrait("x", Display.getWidth() / 2);
