2.1.33 StandaloneRhythmScore

A Score-level context for use by \markup \rhythm.

This context also accepts commands for the following context(s): Score and Timing.

This context creates the following layout object(s): BarNumber, BreakAlignGroup, BreakAlignment, CenteredBarNumber, CenteredBarNumberLineSpanner, CodaMark, ControlPoint, ControlPolygon, Footnote, GraceSpacing, JumpScript, LeftEdge, MetronomeMark, NonMusicalPaperColumn, PaperColumn, Parentheses, RehearsalMark, SectionLabel, SegnoMark, SpacingSpanner, StaffGrouper, SystemStartBar, SystemStartBrace, SystemStartBracket, SystemStartSquare, VerticalAlignment, VoltaBracket and VoltaBracketSpanner.

This context sets the following properties:

This is not a ‘Bottom’ context; search for such a one will commence after creating an implicit context of type StandaloneRhythmStaff.

Context StandaloneRhythmScore can contain ChoirStaff, ChordNames, Devnull, DrumStaff, Dynamics, FiguredBass, FretBoards, GrandStaff, GregorianTranscriptionLyrics, GregorianTranscriptionStaff, KievanStaff, Lyrics, MensuralStaff, NoteNames, OneStaff, PetrucciStaff, PianoStaff, RhythmicStaff, Staff, StaffGroup, StandaloneRhythmStaff, TabStaff, VaticanaLyrics and VaticanaStaff.

This context is built from the following engraver(s):

Bar_number_engraver

A bar number may be created at any bar line, subject to the barNumberVisibility callback. By default, it is put on top of all staves and appears only at the left side of the staff. The staves are taken from stavesFound, which is maintained by Staff_collecting_engraver. This engraver usually creates BarNumber grobs, but when centerBarNumbers is true, it makes CenteredBarNumber grobs instead.

Properties (read)

alternativeNumber (non-negative, exact integer)

When set, the index of the current \alternative element, starting from one. Not set outside of alternatives. Note the distinction from volta number: an alternative may pertain to multiple volte.

alternativeNumberingStyle (symbol)

The scheme and style for numbering bars in repeat alternatives. If not set (the default), bar numbers continue through alternatives. Can be set to numbers to reset the bar number at each alternative, or set to numbers-with-letters to reset and also include letter suffixes.

barNumberFormatter (procedure)

A procedure that takes a bar number, measure position, and alternative number and returns a markup of the bar number to print.

barNumberVisibility (procedure)

A procedure that takes a bar number and a measure position and returns whether the corresponding bar number should be printed. Note that the actual print-out of bar numbers is controlled with the break-visibility property.

The following procedures are predefined:

all-bar-numbers-visible

Enable bar numbers for all bars, including the first one and broken bars (which get bar numbers in parentheses).

first-bar-number-invisible

Enable bar numbers for all bars (including broken bars) except the first one. If the first bar is broken, it doesn’t get a bar number either.

first-bar-number-invisible-save-broken-bars

Enable bar numbers for all bars (including broken bars) except the first one. A broken first bar gets a bar number.

first-bar-number-invisible-and-no-parenthesized-bar-numbers

Enable bar numbers for all bars except the first bar and broken bars. This is the default.

(every-nth-bar-number-visible n)

Assuming n is value 2, for example, this enables bar numbers for bars 2, 4, 6, etc.

(modulo-bar-number-visible n m)

If bar numbers 1, 4, 7, etc., should be enabled, n (the modulo) must be set to 3 and m (the division remainder) to 1.

centerBarNumbers (boolean)

Whether to center bar numbers in their measure instead of aligning them on the bar line.

currentBarNumber (integer)

Contains the current barnumber. This property is incremented at every bar line.

currentCommandColumn (graphical (layout) object)

Grob that is X-parent to all current breakable items (clef, key signature, etc.).

forbidBreak (boolean)

If set to #t, prevent a line break at this point, except if explicitly requested by the user.

forceBreak (boolean)

Set to #t when an event forcing a line break was heard.

measurePosition (moment)

How much of the current measure have we had. This can be set manually to create incomplete measures.

stavesFound (list of grobs)

A list of all staff-symbols found.

This engraver creates the following layout object(s): BarNumber and CenteredBarNumber.

Beam_collision_engraver

Help beams avoid colliding with notes and clefs in other voices.

Break_align_engraver

Align grobs with corresponding break-align-symbols into groups, and order the groups according to breakAlignOrder. The left edge of the alignment gets a separate group, with a symbol left-edge.

This engraver creates the following layout object(s): BreakAlignGroup, BreakAlignment and LeftEdge.

Group measure-centered bar numbers in a CenteredBarNumberLineSpanner so they end up on the same vertical position.

Jump_engraver

This engraver creates instructions such as D.C. and Fine, placing them vertically outside the set of staves given in the stavesFound context property.

If Jump_engraver is added or moved to another context, Staff_collecting_engraver also needs to be there so that marks appear at the intended Y location.

Music types accepted: ad-hoc-jump-event, dal-segno-event and fine-event

Properties (read)

codaMarkCount (non-negative, exact integer)

Updated at the end of each timestep in which a coda mark appears: not set during the first timestep, 0 up to the first coda mark, 1 from the first to the second, 2 from the second to the third, etc.

codaMarkFormatter (procedure)

A procedure that creates a coda mark (which in conventional D.S. al Coda form indicates the start of the alternative endings), taking as arguments the mark sequence number and the context. It should return a markup object.

dalSegnoTextFormatter (procedure)

Format a jump instruction such as D.S.

The first argument is the context.

The second argument is the number of times the instruction is performed.

The third argument is a list of three markups: start-markup, end-markup, and next-markup.

If start-markup is #f, the form is da capo; otherwise the form is dal segno and start-markup is the sign at the start of the repeated section.

If end-markup is not #f, it is either the sign at the end of the main body of the repeat, or it is a Fine instruction. When it is a Fine instruction, next-markup is #f.

If next-markup is not #f, it is the mark to be jumped to after performing the body of the repeat, e.g., Coda.

If Mark_engraver is added or moved to another context, Staff_collecting_engraver also needs to be there so that marks appear at the intended Y location.

By default, Mark_engravers in multiple contexts create a common sequence of marks chosen by the Score-level Mark_tracking_translator. If independent sequences are desired, multiple Mark_tracking_translators must be used.

However, every Bar_engraver that does not have a barline at a certain point will set forbidBreaks in the score context to stop line breaks. In practice, this means that you can make a break point by creating a bar line (assuming that there are no beams or notes that prevent a break point).
