SVGGraph options: id_prefix

Option name:
Default value:
Added in version:
Data type:
string [?]

The datatypes used in this documentation for specifying SVGGraph options are described below. All options can be a literal value of the data type described, a variable containing the data type, or an expression that will produce the data type when evaluated (and they must always be valid PHP expressions).

An array(), the number and data types of its members will depend on the option for which is it used.
A boolean TRUE or FALSE value, or any values that convert easily such as 1, "1", 0 and "".
A callable function, which can be either the name of a function or an anonymous function itself.
Any of the colour values supported by SVG inside a single or double quoted string. These include three and six digit hex codes, RGB and RGBA colours, and colour names. SVG uses "none" for no colour, which generally leaves things transparent.
A colour value or one of the gradients and patterns supported by SVGGraph. See the SVGGraph colours page for details.
A negative or positive whole number or 0.
Any number supported by PHP, for example 1 or -3.2 or 1.63e5 or M_PI.
Single or double quoted strings. Remember to double-quote your strings if you are inserting a line break: "Line 1\nLine 2".

Inserts a prefix string in front of all generated element ids.

SVGGraph makes extensive use of element ids to identify patterns, gradients, markers, and to refer to various elements for Javascript functions. The ids SVGGraph generates always consist of the letter "e" and a sequential numbers in base-36.

If the ids generated by SVGGraph are likely to collide with ids in your page, or if you want to make it easier to find SVGGraph ids by giving them a more distinct name, id_prefix can be used to add an extra string at the start of the id:

$settings['id_prefix'] = 'svggraph_';

will cause ids like this:

  <linearGradient id="svggraph_e2" x1="0" x2="0" y1="0" y2="100%">
    <stop offset="0%" stop-color="#aaa"/>
    <stop offset="50%" stop-color="#eee"/>
    <stop offset="100%" stop-color="#fff"/>
