3.2.110 tie-interface

A horizontal curve connecting two noteheads.

User settable properties:

annotation (string)

Annotate a grob for debug purposes.

avoid-slur (symbol)

Method of handling slur collisions. Choices are around, inside, outside. If unset, scripts and slurs ignore each other. around only moves the script if there is a collision; outside always moves the script.

control-points (list)

List of offsets (number pairs) that form control points for the tie, slur, or bracket shape. For Béziers, this should list the control points of a third-order Bézier curve.

dash-fraction (number)

Size of the dashes, relative to dash-period. Should be between 0.0 (no line) and 1.0 (continuous line).

dash-period (number)

The length of one dash together with whitespace. If negative, no line is drawn at all.

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.

head-direction (direction)

Are the note heads left or right in a semitie?

line-thickness (number)

The thickness of the tie or slur contour.

neutral-direction (direction)

Which direction to take in the center of the staff.

staff-position (number)

Vertical position, measured in half staff spaces, counted from the middle line.

thickness (number)

Line thickness, generally measured in line-thickness.

Internal properties:

details (list)

Alist of parameters for detailed grob behavior.

More information on the allowed parameters can be found by inspecting ‘lily/slur-scoring.cc’, ‘lily/beam-quanting.cc’, and ‘lily/tie-formatting-problem.cc’. Setting debug-tie-scoring, debug-beam-scoring or debug-slur-scoring also provides useful clues.

quant-score (string)

The beam quanting score; stored for debugging.

separation-item (layout object)

A separation item.

This grob interface is used in the following graphical object(s): Tie.
