TIL: SVGs have additional pointer-events properties

Today I came across this example about certain things you can do with pointer-events in CSS.

.foo {
  pointer-events: visiblePainted;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

visiblePainted is something I haven't seen before and it turns out that SVGs several other values for the pointer-events property:

  • visiblePainted
  • visibleFill
  • visibleStroke
  • visible
  • painted
  • fill
  • stroke
  • all

You can control very granular how elements in an SVG should behave and it's not bound to the typical "web development boxes". If you want to read more MDN has you covered. :)
