Musescore crashes

• May 8, 2011 - 15:01

Dear Musescore Developers,

I have a problem with a plugin I'm currently writing. It is supposed to repitch notes of a voice with pitches of another voice and I described it here already. The reason for opening a new thread is that during the development I encountered several crashes of Musescore. I'd like to know whether maybe something with the scripting framework is going wrong or if I'm writing incredibly crappy code.

Right now I came to a point where it actually works as I have borrowed code from several other plugins.
But on the second note Musescore violently crashes. Using the script debugger shows that (this time, it has been on other lines for various times and for me not understandable reasons) it is the line where the note is added to the chord. Strangely it works once. The core of it looks like that:

while (!source_cursor.eos())
if (source_cursor.isChord())
addNote(target_cursor, // CRASH on second note

// taken from "Create Score" plugin,
// not touched, should work
function addNote(cursor, pitch, duration)
var chord = new Chord();
chord.tickLen = duration;
var note = new Note();
note.pitch = pitch;


The error I'm getting looks like that:

One more thing I really don't understand is the following! If I run the "Note names" plug in, everything is ok. If I activate the script debugger, it doesn't work! Musescore then complains that certain objects are not created properly (cursor, notes, or text in my example)!

I'm a little desperate and demotivated so please tell me whether this is a general error in the Musescore scripting environment (looks a little like that) or if my code is crappy. I've attached a full version as well..

Thank you very much,
