Streaming SVG in an ASPX page

Hi All,

I need some help.

I have an ASPX Page. I would like to stream a simple polygon in SVG.

I'v tried MANY combinations but with no luck
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Response.Clear();
            Response.ContentType = "image/svg+xml";
            Response.Write("<?xml version=\"1.0\" standalone=\"no\"?>");
            Response.Write("<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd\">");
            Response.Write("<svg width=\"12cm\" height=\"4cm\" viewBox=\"0 0 1200 400 xmlns=\"http://www.w3.org/2000/svg\" version=\"1.1\">");
            Response.Write("<desc>Example polygon01 - star and hexagon</desc>");
            Response.Write("  <rect x=\"1\" y=\"1\" width=\"1198\" height=\"398\" fill=\"none\" stroke=\"blue\" stroke-width=\"2\" />");
            Response.Write("   <polygon fill=\"red\" stroke=\"blue\" stroke-width=\"10\" points=\"350,75  379,161 469,161 397,215 423,301 350,250 277,301 303,215 231,161 321,161\" />");
            Response.Write("</svg>");
            Response.End();
        }

I hav tried changing the type from image to text, taking out the XML and DOCTYPE and no luck.
I have the adobe viewer installed on IE6.


Any help appreciated

Your svg is not well formed.
It may be the namespaces you have eclared.

This works ;

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {

                  Response.AddHeader("Content-Type","image/svg-xml");
                  Response.Write("<svg width=\"12cm\" height=\"4cm\" viewBox=\"0 0 1200 400\">");
                  Response.Write("<desc>Example polygon01 - star and hexagon</desc>");
                  Response.Write("  <rect x=\"1\" y=\"1\" width=\"1198\" height=\"398\" fill=\"none\" stroke=\"blue\" stroke-width=\"2\" />");
                  Response.Write("   <polygon fill=\"red\" stroke=\"blue\" stroke-width=\"10\" points=\"350,75  379,161 469,161 397,215 423,301 350,250 277,301 303,215 231,161 321,161\" />");
                  Response.Write("</svg>");
                  Response.End();


            }

OK.
I have found the problem it is here :

 Response.Write("<svg width=\"12cm\" height=\"4cm\" viewBox=\"0 0 1200 400 xmlns=\"http://www.w3.org/2000/svg\" version=\"1.1\">");

The attribute viewBox is not closed correctly you need it to be this :

 Response.Write("<svg width=\"12cm\" height=\"4cm\" viewBox=\"0 0 1200 400\" xmlns=\"http://www.w3.org/2000/svg\" version=\"1.1\">");

If you look in your browser when you mouse-over the page the svg plug-in has actually set the status bar test to :

not well formed : line 1, column 195.

However, it just shows this as info, not and error or even a warning.

I tried copy & paste from your 1st reply, al I get is a blank SVG plugin window.
I also tried fixing the viewbox window, no change

Ok this is very weird ...

The 1st demo shows nothing
<%Response.AddHeader "Content-Type","image/svg-xml"%>
<svg>
  <rect x="10" y="10" width="100" height="100"/>
</svg>



The 2nd one ...
<%Response.AddHeader "Content-Type","image/svg-xml"%>
<svg width="12cm" height="3.6cm" viewBox="0 0 1000 300"
     xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
     xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
  <defs>
    <path id="MyPath"
          d="M 100 200
             C 200 100 300   0 400 100
             C 500 200 600 300 700 200
             C 800 100 900 100 900 100" />
  </defs>
  <desc>Example toap01 - simple text on a path</desc>

  <use xlink:href="#MyPath" fill="none" stroke="red"  />
  <text font-family="Verdana" font-size="42.5" fill="blue" >
    <textPath xlink:href="#MyPath">
      <%
      Dim title
      title = "We go up, then we go down, then up again."
      If Request("title") <> "" Then
         title = Request("title")
      End If
      Response.Write title
      %>
    </textPath>
  </text>

  <!-- Show outline of canvas using 'rect' element -->
  <rect x="1" y="1" width="998" height="298"
        fill="none" stroke="blue" stroke-width="2" />
</svg>

Works 100% ... I tried uninstalling/rebooting and it's still the same

It turns out that none of the SVGs are visible on the same machie as VS2005 is installed and I'm debugging from, but once I connect to the IIS site from a remote machine then I can see the SVG.

Does anybody know what to do to get it visible on the same machine?

There was a vulnerability in the svg rendering library in windows a while ago.
There was a delay in the patch from microsoft and the interim patch de-registered the faulty dll.
I do not know if this dll is used by the adobe plug-in at all but it may be that you need to patch-up your machine to get this fixed.
Or you could try re-registering the dll to see if it helps :

regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VGX\vgx.dll"

OK. However, you should make sure you are fully patched.
The Vulnerability in the SVG dll was a zero-day, remote code execution vulnerability.
If you are not patched you could get a nasty shock.
