Number of Staves per Part

Postby Matthew.James.Briggs » Sat May 14, 2016 8:56 am

In the note element we can specify
Code: Select all
<staff>1</staff>
Code: Select all
<staff>2</staff>
, etc.

But do we declare the number of staves that are in a part anywhere? If I want to know how many staves are in a part, do I need to read all of the music data looking for the largest
Code: Select all
<staff>
value, or can we find it somewhere else?

Hopefully the question is clear. Thanks.

Also, with the new github page, ww3, etc, is this forum still the right place for questions?

I see now that the number of staves is specified within each measure:

Code: Select all
<staves>2</staves>

Sure, you can ask MusicXML questions here - especially about how MusicXML works with Finale or our Dolet for Sibelius plug-in. The W3C group discussion is focused more on future versions of MusicXML and music notation formats.
