3.2.80 lyric-extender-interface

The extender is a simple line at the baseline of the lyric that helps show the length of a melisma (a tied or slurred note).

User-settable properties:

left-padding (dimension, in staff space)

The amount of space that is put left to an object (e.g., a lyric extender).

next (graphical (layout) object)

Object that is next relation (e.g., the lyric syllable following an extender).

right-padding (dimension, in staff space)

Space to insert on the right side of an object (e.g., between note and its accidentals).

thickness (number)

For grobs made up of lines, this is the thickness of the line. For slurs and ties, this is the distance between the two arcs of the curve’s outline at its thickest point, not counting the diameter of the virtual “pen” that draws the arcs. This property is expressed as a multiple of the current staff-line thickness (i.e., the visual output is influenced by changes to Staff.StaffSymbol.thickness).

Internal properties:

heads (array of grobs)

An array of note heads.

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