Hour 8. Symbols > Workshop


The Workshop is designed to help you anticipate possible questions, review what you've learned, and begin learning how to put your knowledge into practice.


1: True or False: Symbols allow you to reuse the same piece of artwork multiple times in one document.
A1: True. A symbol can be referenced indefinitely within a document, creating as many duplicates of the symbol as there are references for it in the document.
2:Which element is used to store a series of symbols and other referential items?
A2: The defs element is used to harbor symbols and other content to be referenced in an SVG document.
3:For an object to be referenced as a symbol by the use element, what attribute must it have defined?
A3: The use element requires an symbol to be named via the id attribute so that its xlink:href attribute can specify a specific item.
4:True or False: The use element cannot accept the style attribute.
A4: False. SVG symbols can accept radically different appearances because their referencing agent (the use element) can accept additional visual information through the style attribute.
5:True or False: Symbols can reside within other symbols.
A5: True. Yet another powerful aspect of the SVG symbol is its ability to use other symbols within itself. By using a symbol within a symbol (within a symbol, and so on), you can create a very modular design that is easy to update quickly.
