3.2.37 dot-column-interface

Group dot objects so they form a column, and position dots so they do not clash with staff lines.

User-settable properties:

chord-dots-limit (integer)

Limits the column of dots on each chord to the height of the chord plus chord-dots-limit staff positions.

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.

Internal properties:

dots (array of grobs)

Multiple Dots objects.

note-collision (graphical (layout) object)

The NoteCollision object of a dot column.

positioning-done (boolean)

Used to signal that a positioning element did its job. This ensures that a positioning is only done once.

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