JavaScript Fetch from ID and add as title for SVG


Well-Known Coder
The below code is from an SVG symbol file. It now has <title> which was not there before. I manually added it by referring to " class ". In this case, it is GBP. The title helps us search inside the SVG sprite/symbol file. I have a file with around 1300 + SVG symbols. This means there are 1300 icons without a title but has the info as " class " for each of them.

Is it possible to fetch the info from " class " and add a <title></title> for each icon ?

[CODE lang="xml" title="SVG Symbol"]<symbol

class="bi bi-currency-pound"
viewBox="0 0 16 16">

<title id="pound gbp">GBP Currency Pound</title>

Can this code help ? If no, it would be nice to have some help. Thanks

[CODE lang="javascript" title="class to title"]
var className = document.getElementsByTagName('symbol')[0].getAttribute('class')

document.getElementsByTagName('symbol')[0].setAttribute('Title', className)
