I'm working off the "adding bar lines to chord names context" example, but have variable time signatures in my piece. I'd like those to show up as numeric time signatures in the same line as the chord names. How can I get the time signature to show up?

This minimal example:

<pre> 
\version "2.18.2"


\new ChordNames \with {
   \override BarLine.bar-extent = #'(-2 . 2)
   \consists "Bar_engraver"
}

\chordmode {
   \time 4/4 f1:maj7 
   \time 2/4 f2:7 
   \time 4/4 bes1:7
}
</pre>

gets the bar lines in the right places but does not display the time signature in any form.

Add the time signature engraver using \consists, and (optionally) set the context to use numeric time signatures:

    \version "2.18.2"

    \new ChordNames \with {
        \override BarLine.bar-extent = #'(-2 . 2)
        \consists "Bar_engraver"
        \consists "Time_signature_engraver"
        \numericTimeSignature
    }
