                <h1>How does stroke-dasharray work</h1>
<p>stroke-dasharray only works on SVG elements. It is a bit confusing because you can apply it using CSS, but that CSS rule will only affect SVG elements.</p>
<p>Let's make an svg box that is 100 by 100 so 400 length perimeter, and apply <pre>
  stroke-dasharray: 10;
</pre></p>

	<svg width="100" height="100" class="strokeTest">
		<rect width="100" height="100" x="0" y="0" />
	</svg>

<p></p>

<a href="https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/stroke-dasharray">If you read the docs</a> stroke-dasharray: "specify the lengths of alternating dashes and gaps. If an odd number of values is provided, then the list of values is repeated to yield an even number of values.</p>

<p>So a pair of numbers specifics the length of a dash, and a gap. This then gets repeated all the way around the shape.</p>

<p>Important, these lengths are relative to the SVG, viewports can change this etc</p>

<p>Play with the CSS. Notice that 
<pre>
  stroke-dasharray: 10;
</pre>
  and
<pre>
  stroke-dasharray: 10 10;
</pre>
are the same effect because if you have an odd number of lengths, they get doubled.
</p>

<p>You could set a specific length for each dash and gap around a whole shape if you wanted to.</p>

<p>Let's make a second shape and give it increasingly larger dashes, and gaps using
  <pre>
stroke-dasharray: 10 20 30 40 50 60;
</pre>
</p>

	<svg width="100" height="100" class="strokeTestExtended">
		<rect width="100" height="100" x="0" y="0" />
	</svg>

<p>Notice how the pattern wraps around and hits the end before it can finish the second time. This is becase 10+20+30+40+50+60 = 210, while the perimeter of the square is only 400, so the last 20 is cut off.</p>
