This post is part of my Today I learned series in which I share all my web development learnings.

Today I came across this example about things you can do with pointer-events in CSS.

.foo {
  pointer-events: visiblePainted;        
}

visiblePainted is something I haven't seen before and it turns out that SVGs several other values for the pointer-events property:

  • visiblePainted
  • visibleFill
  • visibleStroke
  • visible
  • painted
  • fill
  • stroke
  • all

You can control very granular how elements in an SVG should behave and it's not bound to the typical "web development boxes". If you want to read more MDN has you covered. :)
