att.measure.log

Logical domain attributes. The n attribute contains a name or number associated with the measure (Read, p. 445). Often, this is an integer, but not always. For example, some measures, especially incomplete measures or those under an ending mark, may have labels that contain an integer plus a suffix, such as '12a'. Measures may even have labels, especially in editorial or analytical uses of MEI, that are entirely non-numeric strings. Measure numbers may be machine-generated instead of encoding them in the markup. However, an explicit measure number should restart numbering with the given value. The join attribute may be used to indicate another measure which metrically completes the current, incomplete one.

Attributes
control, left, metcon, right, when
control(optional)Indicates whether or not a bar line is "controlling"; that is, if it indicates a point of alignment across all the parts. Bar lines within a score are usually controlling; that is, they "line up". Bar lines within parts may or may not be controlling. When applied to measure, this attribute indicates the nature of the right barline but not the left. Value conforms to data.BOOLEAN.
left(optional)Indicates the visual rendition of the left bar line. It is present here only for facilitation of translation from legacy encodings which use it. Usually, it can be safely ignored. Value conforms to data.BARRENDITION.
metcon(optional)Indicates the relationship between the content of a measure and the prevailing meter. Value conforms to data.BOOLEAN.
right(optional)Indicates the function of the right bar line and is structurally important. Value conforms to data.BARRENDITION.
when(optional)Indicates the point of occurrence of this feature along a time line. Its value must be the ID of a when element elsewhere in the document. Value conforms to data.URI.
left(optional)Indicates the visual rendition of the left bar line. It is present here only for facilitation of translation from legacy encodings which use it. Usually, it can be safely ignored. Value conforms to data.BARRENDITION.
right(optional)Indicates the function of the right bar line and is structurally important. Value conforms to data.BARRENDITION.
(MEI.performance) Temporal alignment attributes.
when(optional)Indicates the point of occurrence of this feature along a time line. Its value must be the ID of a when element elsewhere in the document. Value conforms to data.URI.
(MEI.shared) Attributes that provide information about a measure's conformance to the prevailing meter.
metcon(optional)Indicates the relationship between the content of a measure and the prevailing meter. Value conforms to data.BOOLEAN.
control(optional)Indicates whether or not a bar line is "controlling"; that is, if it indicates a point of alignment across all the parts. Bar lines within a score are usually controlling; that is, they "line up". Bar lines within parts may or may not be controlling. When applied to measure, this attribute indicates the nature of the right barline but not the left. Value conforms to data.BOOLEAN.
