# GraphicsColumn

 GraphicsColumngenerates a graphic in which the are laid out in a column, with above , etc. GraphicsColumn aligns each element horizontally in the specified way. GraphicsColumn leaves the specified spacing between successive elements.
• The output from GraphicsColumn can be interactively resized, or edited as a graphic.
• Possible alignments are:
 Center centered Left left justified (default) Right right justified Full stretched if possible to full width Automatic alignment points of successive items aligned
• GraphicsColumn will by default make all items the same height, preserving individual aspect ratios for graphics, and leaving space if necessary.
• Possible overall spacings between items are:
 h an absolute number of printer's points Scaled[s] a fraction s of the height of an item
• The can be any expressions, not just graphics.
• The following options can be given:
 Alignment {Center,Center} horizontal and vertical alignment of elements AspectRatio Automatic ratio of height to width for the whole column Background None what background colors to use BaselinePosition Automatic what to align with a surrounding text baseline BaseStyle {} base style specifications for the column Dividers None where to draw divider lines in the column Frame None where to draw frames in the column FrameStyle Automatic style to use for frames ImageSize Automatic overall size of the whole graphics column Spacings Scaled[0.1] horizontal and vertical spacings
• Common settings for Frame include:
 None no frame True frame around the whole column All frame around every item in the column
• Background can be a list giving settings for each item in the column.
• Settings for the options Alignment, Background, and Frame can be given as follows to apply separately to successive items in the column:
 {s1,s2,...,sn} use through , then use defaults {{c}} use c in all cases {{c1,c2}} alternate between and {{c1,c2,...}} cycle through all {s,{c}} use s, then repeatedly use c {s1,{c},sn} use , then repeatedly use c, but use at the end {s1,s2,...,{c1,c2,...},sm,...,sn} use the first sequence of at the beginning, then cyclically use the , then use the last sequence of at the end {s1,s2,...,{},sm,...,sn} use the first sequence of at the beginning and the last sequence at the end {i1->v1,i2->v2,...} specify what to use at positions {spec,rules} use rules to override specifications in spec
• With settings of the form , if there are more specified than items in the column, from the beginning are used for the first items, and ones from the end are used for the last items.
• For a column of n elements, Dividers and Spacings can specify settings for the gaps between elements, starting before the first element, and ending after the last element.
 spec apply spec to all gaps between items {specx,specy} apply to successive horizontal and vertical gaps
 Axis axis of the middle row in the column (default) Baseline baseline of the middle row in the column Bottom bottom of the whole column Center halfway from top to bottom Top top of the whole column {i,pos} position pos in element i
• The settings for BaseStyle are appended to the default style typically given by the style in the current stylesheet.
