I know this is probably really easy but I just can't find anything in the docs or here on the forums...

I am just trying to do a simple for-loop inside a template, the number is coming from a variable in the database. This is what I want (done in php)

<?php for( $x=0;$x < $num;$x++) { ?>
Delegate <?php echo $x; ?> <input type="text" value="<?php echo $x; ?><br />
<?php } ?>

I have tried putting a function in my controller like this:

function delegates(num) {
for($x=0;$x < $num;$x++) {
$data .="Delegate $x";
return $data;

then calling it like this in the template:

<% control delegates( $num ) %><%end_control %>

but this isn't working

is there a way to do this?

You said the number is coming from the database, but I don't see any queries.

One thing you could do..

function Delegates()
$data = new ArrayData();
for(...) {
$data->push(new ArrayData(array('Num' => $x)));
return $data;

<% control Delegates %>$Num<% end_control %>
