Deprecated since SVG 2
This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.
xlink:show attribute indicates how a linked resource should be opened and is meant for XLink-aware processors. In case of a conflict, the
target attribute has priority, since it can express a wider range of values.
Only one element is using this attribute:
- This value specifies that the referenced resource is opened in a new window or tab. This is similar to the effect achieved by an HTML
- This value specifies that the referenced resource is opened in the same window or tab. This is similar to the effect achieved by an HTML
- This value specifies that instead of linking to the resource it will be loaded and shown within the document. This is similar to the effect achieved by an HTML
- This value indicates that other markup present in the link, i.e. the
targetattribute, determines its behavior.
- This value specifies that there is no indication for how to refer to the linked resource.
