Status:Contributed, Draft
Version:1.4
Author:Eugene Lazukin, Jared Jurkiewicz
Available:since V1.0

The dojox.gfx.utils module is a set of utility functions for working with dojox.gfx.Surface objects. They mainly consist of serialization functions to allow you to serialize adojox.gfx.Surface in to a variety of forms, from GFX Objects, to JSON, to even SVG text across all browsers.

Provided functions

  • dojox.gfx.utils.toJson - Serialize the passed surface object to JSON form
  • dojox.gfx.utils.fromJson - Rebuild the dojox.gfx.Surface object from the provided JSON
  • dojox.gfx.utils.serialize - Serialize the passed surface object to JavaScript Object form
  • dojox.gfx.utils.deserialize - Rebuild the dojox.gfx.Surface object from the provided JS representation.
  • dojox.gfx.utils.toSvg - Serialize the passed surface object to SVG text. Note: This function call returns a deferred as serialization is async on some browsers.
