Syntax: GetAsSVG ( text )


textAny expression that resolves to a text string.

Data type returned: Text


GetAsSVG() returns a representation of the text string, marked up in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. SVG can capture rich text formatting that has been applied to a text string.

SVG format can be used to transfer formatted text from FileMaker to other applications. You can also test an SVG-formatted version of a text string to determine what, if any, formatting has been applied to the string.


The field myField contains two phrases, Go Team and Hello World!, each with some text formatting applied to it.
