3.1.38 DynamicLineSpanner

DynamicLineSpanner objects are created by: Dynamic_align_engraver.

Standard settings:

axes (list):


List of axis numbers. In the case of alignment grobs, this should contain only one number.

direction (direction):


If side-axis is 0 (or X), then this property determines whether the object is placed LEFT, CENTER or RIGHT with respect to the other object. Otherwise, it determines whether the object is placed UP, CENTER or DOWN. Numerical values may also be used: UP=1, DOWN=-1, LEFT=-1, RIGHT=1, CENTER=0.

minimum-space (dimension, in staff space):


Minimum distance that the victim should move (after padding).

outside-staff-priority (number):


If set, the grob is positioned outside the staff in such a way as to avoid all collisions. In case of a potential collision, the grob with the smaller outside-staff-priority is closer to the staff.

padding (dimension, in staff space):


Add this much extra space between objects that are next to each other.

side-axis (number):


If the value is X (or equivalently 0), the object is placed horizontally next to the other object. If the value is Y or 1, it is placed vertically.

slur-padding (number):


Extra distance between slur and script.

staff-padding (dimension, in staff space):


Maintain this much space between reference points and the staff. Its effect is to align objects of differing sizes (like the dynamics p and f) on their baselines.

vertical-skylines (pair of skylines):

#<unpure-pure-container #<primitive-procedure ly:grob::vertical-skylines-from-element-stencils> #<primitive-procedure ly:grob::pure-vertical-skylines-from-element-stencils> >

Two skylines, one above and one below this grob.

X-extent (pair of numbers):


Hard coded extent in X direction.

Y-extent (pair of numbers):

#<unpure-pure-container #<primitive-procedure ly:axis-group-interface::height> #<primitive-procedure ly:axis-group-interface::pure-height> >

Hard coded extent in Y direction.

Y-offset (number):

#<unpure-pure-container #<primitive-procedure ly:side-position-interface::y-aligned-side> #<primitive-procedure ly:side-position-interface::pure-y-aligned-side> >

The vertical amount that this object is moved relative to its Y-parent.

This object supports the following interface(s): axis-group-interface, dynamic-interface, dynamic-line-spanner-interface, grob-interface, side-position-interface and spanner-interface.
