Hello,

at first - nice library, ATM there no free competitor to this one :)

It reads perfect and offers may possibilities to change svg on the fly because of it nice implementation of DOM.

My question is - are there possibilities to use filters?
As example :
    <filter
       inkscape:collect="always"
       id="filter3864"
       x="-0.17487684"
       width="1.3497537"
       y="-0.19392285"
       height="1.3878457">
      <feGaussianBlur
         inkscape:collect="always"
         stdDeviation="13.601533"
         id="feGaussianBlur3866" />
    </filter>
Thank you in advance.
Cheers,

Hello Andrey,

Thank you. Sorry, currently filters are not implemented.
WPF was released initially with software filters that were so slow and unusable at the time.

With hardware supporting filters, I am looking into it but the problem is which version of WPF to target
for this library. Maybe I will need to take a survey to decide.

Best regards,
Paul.

Hi Paul,

since you already have abstraction layer with all FilterElements - you are free to take any version of WPF. Kinda like MESA GL do in its early years. Or how Intel does in their actual OpenGL drivers for their video cards (a bit of morbid joke). ;)

Anyways thank you for yours answer.

Best Regards,
Andrey
