\addtogroup renderer_interfaces Rendering Engine Interfaces One of a number of interfaces (all starting with nsISVGRenderer*) to be implemented by an SVG rendering engine. See nsISVGRenderer for more details.

The SVG rendering backend uses this interface to communicate to the rendering engine-native path objects.

A path geometry object is instantiated by the rendering backend for a given nsISVGPathGeometrySource object with a call to nsISVGRenderer::createPathGeometry(). The path geometry object is assumed to store a reference to its associated source object and provide rendering, hit-testing and metrics for the path described by the nsISVGPathGeometrySource members.


readonly nsIDOMSVGRect boundingBox

Bounding box (does not include stroke width)


PRBool containsPoint ( float x , float y ) nsISVGRendererRegion getCoveredRegion ( ) void render ( nsISVGRendererCanvas canvas ) nsISVGRendererRegion update ( PRUint32 updatemask )

PRBool containsPoint ( float x , float y )

Hit-testing method. Does this path geometry (with all relevant transformations applied) contain the point x,y? Mode of operation (e.g. whether to test fill or stroke) is determined by nsISVGPathGeometrySource::hittestMask.

x: X-coordinate of test point. @param y Y-coordinate of test point.
PR_TRUE if the path geometry contains the point, PR_FALSE otherwise.

nsISVGRendererRegion getCoveredRegion ( )

Get a region object describing the area covered with paint by this path geometry.

Covered region.

void render ( nsISVGRendererCanvas canvas )

Paint this object.

canvas: The canvas to render to.

nsISVGRendererRegion update ( PRUint32 updatemask )

Called by this object's corresponding nsISVGPathGeometrySource as a notification that some of the source's data (identified by paramter 'updatemask') has changed.

updatemask: An OR-ed combination of the UPDATEMASK_* constants defined in nsISVGPathGeometrySource.
Region that needs to be redrawn.
