SVGStyleElement: type property

Deprecated: 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.

The SVGStyleElement.type property returns the type of the current style. The value reflects the associated SVG <style> element's type attribute.

Authors should not use this property or rely on the value.


The permitted values are an empty string or a case-insensitive match for "text/css".


SVG 1.1 defined that a DOMException is raised with code NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR on an attempt to change the value of a read-only attribute. This restriction was removed in SVG 2.
