I am creating a fairly deeply nested menu. I only want to show the 'tree' for the currently selected page. I need to check as the menu is being created that the currently displayed page is either the menu item I am going to display OR the currently displayed page is a child of it.

The first bit is easy - although I'm not sure it's the best way <% if LinkingMode == current %>. However, the second bit I have no idea.

Just to illustrate....

Menu 1
Menu 2
Menu 3

That is imaging we are displaying page 'SubSubMenu3'. When the top level menu is being generated (control Menu(1) ), how to detect that 'Menu 2' link is a parent of 'SubSubMenu3' and generate the sub menus *only* in that instance?

Any help appreciated!!

Of course, two seconds later solved it <% if LinkOrSection == section %>

BTW... the controls page says one = sign, the docs for the <% if %> says two. Which is right, two seems to work?
