        } catch (SVGParseException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        if(svg.getDocumentWidth() != - 1F) {
            svg.setDocumentHeight(600f);
            svg.setDocumentWidth(600f);
            Bitmap bitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(700, 700, Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
            Canvas canvas = new Canvas(bitmap);
            canvas.drawARGB(0, 255, 255, 255);
