3.2.1 accidental-interface

A single accidental.

User-settable properties:

alteration (number)

Alteration numbers for accidental.

alteration-glyph-name-alist (association list (list of pairs))

An alist of key-string pairs.

avoid-slur (symbol)

Method of handling slur collisions. Choices are inside, outside, around, and ignore. inside adjusts the slur if needed to keep the grob inside the slur. outside moves the grob vertically to the outside of the slur. around moves the grob vertically to the outside of the slur only if there is a collision. ignore does not move either. In grobs whose notational significance depends on vertical position (such as accidentals, clefs, etc.), outside and around behave like ignore.

glyph-name (string)

The glyph name within the font.

In the context of (span) bar lines or clefs, glyph-name represents a processed form of glyph, where decisions about line breaking, etc., are already taken.

hide-tied-accidental-after-break (boolean)

If set, an accidental that appears on a tied note after a line break will not be displayed.

restore-first (boolean)

Print a natural before the accidental.

Internal properties:

forced (boolean)

Manually forced accidental.

tie (graphical (layout) object)

A pointer to a Tie object.

This grob interface is used in the following graphical object(s): Accidental, AccidentalCautionary, AccidentalSuggestion, AmbitusAccidental and TrillPitchAccidental.
