This attribute indicates the final value of the attribute that will be modified during the animation. The value of the attribute will change between the from attribute value and this value. By default the change will be linear.

When this attribute is used with the <set> element, it specifies the value for the attribute during the duration of the <set> element.

The exact value type for this attribute depend on the value of the attribute that will be animated.


This example uses a value of 150 for the to attribute, so the shape will animate to a height of 150.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<svg width="200" height="200"
  viewPort="0 0 200 200" version="1.1"
  <rect x="10" y="10" width="100" height="100">
    <animate attributeType="XML"
      from="100" to="150"


The following elements can use the to attribute
