I am using $pos so I know what position i'm in on the menu. I then reference css using menupos$pos. I use <% if LinkingMode = current %> to find out whether the page should be active or not. What I would like to know is how I can test the position i'm at on the menu say:

<% Holdmenupos = $pos %>
<% if Holdmenupos = 1 Then %>
Do something
<% else %>
Do something else
<% end if %>

This doesnt however work - in firefox this shows <% Holdmenupos = 1 %> <% Holdmenupos = 2 %> on the page itself .... How would I be able to store and "use" the variable properly in .ss pages?

Thanks

Hi stevejo

If:

<% if LinkingMode = current %>


works, i don't see why:

<% if Pos = 1 %>


wouldn't...

Have you tried that?

Hi and thanks for replying. I have tried that however that would actually translate as <% if 1 = 1 %> as $pos holds the position itself.

Many thanks

I'm not sure i follow. If you do something like:

<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if Pos = 1 %>
...
<% else %>
...
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>

Then for the first menu item it will do the first part of the if statement and the rest will do the else.

If that isn't the type of thing you want to do, can you elaborate a bit more please?

This is also equivalent:

<% if First %>
