Callback when last line in pattern is reached


How would I go about notifying a function when the last line of the current pattern has been reached?

You mean during playback? Or when you edit?

During playback

This would be handy for some tools I’ve been hacking on.

As workaround you can use a timer or maybe even the “idle”-callback and simply check with the pattern length. But its not stable enough for higher lpb values.

Edit: You could be inspired by checking the source of this tool: New Tool (3.2.2) Playback Loop Selection v1.3.004 (August 2020)

Thanks, that is helpful. I was able to blast through my issue.

function current_line_is_last_in_pattern()
  return ==

function main()
  if current_line_is_last_in_pattern() then
    print("last line!")

renoise.tool():add_timer(main, 200)

Trick here is to add it to a timer. Remember and account for the fact that Renoise timers are not perfect.

I’d have to go look at my code because I think I tried something like this but I was getting double triggers or missed triggers.

Basically I want to have code loop over a patter range N times, and when it enters the last pattern at loop N to set a new loop range.

But it would at times get the loop count wrong , I think because the line checking would sometimes miss.

I was hoping for something existed in the API that did not require manual timers.

I too was hoping for something in the API. Hope we get that eventually… so many cool ideas can become stable or just become.
