3.1.128 VoltaBracketSpanner

VoltaBracketSpanner objects are created by: Volta_engraver.

Standard settings:

axes (list):


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

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.

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.

padding (dimension, in staff space):


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

Y-offset (number):


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

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.

Y-extent (pair of numbers):


Hard coded extent in Y direction.

X-extent (pair of numbers):


Hard coded extent in X direction.

no-alignment (boolean):


If set, don’t place this grob in a VerticalAlignment; rather, place it using its own Y-offset callback.

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