  • You can use the Inline SVG UI Pattern to change fill and stroke properties or animate the SVG paths.

    How to use the Inline SVG UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Inline SVG.

      The Inline SVG widget is displayed.

      If the UI widget does not display, it may be because you used a ready-made app, which deletes unused widgets from the module. To make additional widgets available in your app:

      a. Go to Module > Manage dependencies.

      b. Search for and select the relevant Producer, for example OutSystemsUI. Ensure Show All is selected.

      c. On the Public elements for the selected Producer displayed on the right, ensure Show All is selected.

      d. Search for and select the element you want to add, and click Apply.

      e. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for the widget again.

    2. From the Toolbox, drag the Inline SVG widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

    3. On the Properties tab, in the SVGCode property, set your SVG code.

      In this example, we enter the following:

      "<svg height=""100"" width=""350"" fill=""yellow""> <circle cx=""50"" cy=""50"" r=""30"" stroke=""red"" stroke-width=""25"" fill=""white"" /> <text x=""110"" y=""60"" fill=""black"" font-size=""40"" font-weight=""bold"" font-family=""open sans"">outsystems</text> Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG. </svg>"

    After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.

    Using the example above, the results are as follows:


    Property Description
    SVGCode (Text): Optional SVG markup code that is appended onto the HTML.
    ExtendedClass (Text): Optional

    Adds custom style classes to the Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.


    • Blank - No custom styles are added (default value).
    • "myclass" - Adds the myclass style to the UI styles being applied.
    • "myclass1 myclass2" - Adds the myclass1 and myclass2 styles to the UI styles being applied.
    You can also use the classes available on the OutSystems UI. For more information, see the OutSystems UI Live Style Guide.
