Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) is a language for describing two-dimensional graphics and graphical applications in XML. It can be used to create dynamic graphs for a Web site. You can use the Lotus Notes agent in this tip to generate a dynamic SVG. Take a look at a sample graph on my blog.

  
Create a Lotus Notes agent (name "svgagent"). 
Sub Initialize
Print |Content-type:image/svg+xml|
 
Print |<?xml version="1.0"?>|
Print |<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC 
"-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN"
"https://www.w3.org/TR/2001/
REC-SVG-20010904/DTD/svg10.dtd">|
Print |<svg width="200" height="200" 
xmlns=
"https://www.w3.org/2000/svg" 
xmlns:xlink="https://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">|
Print |<desc>polyline</desc>|
Print |<g>|
Print |<polyline id="lens" points=
"10,180 40,120 70,140 100,90 130,40 160,100" 
fill="none" stroke="purple" stroke-width="2"/>|
'processing and draw the graph
Print |</g>|
Print |</svg>|
End Sub

Then, in your Web page, you can embed the code below. For Firefox and Netscape, use the following:

<object type="image/svg+xml" 
data="svgagent?OpenAgent" 
width="200" height="200">
</object>

For Internet Explorer use this:

<embed src="svgagent?OpenAgent"
 width="200" height="200" pluginspage=
"https://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/">
<embed>
