3.1.3 AccidentalPlacement

In groups of Accidental grobs, this auxiliary grob controls their horizontal padding and configuration (which ones are placed more to left or to the right).

AccidentalPlacement objects are created by: Accidental_engraver and Ambitus_engraver.

Standard settings:

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.

right-padding (dimension, in staff space):


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

script-priority (number):


A key for determining the order of scripts in a stack, by being added to the position of the script in the user input, the sum being the overall priority. Smaller means closer to the head.

X-extent (pair of numbers):


Extent (size) in the X direction, measured in staff-space units, relative to object’s reference point.

This object supports the following interface(s): accidental-placement-interface, grob-interface and item-interface.

This object is of class Item (characterized by item-interface).
