Is there a global variable that I can check which will notify me if I am in a control loop so that I can modify IDs in the code behind (php files) as I would like to append the control's position (ie 1,2,3,....) to the end of the attribute.
For exampe if I have a calendar called FromDate and this is in to be displayed in a control loop, the ID should rather be FormName_FromDate1, FormName_FromDate2, etc, etc

what you're looking for is $Pos (see http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=built-in-page-controls#dataobjectset_options)
anyway, i don't know what you're after exactly, but this reads as though it could also be accomplished using a class instead of multiple ids, then doing something like this (jquery):
(you may also use the jquery 'nth-child' selector, but it's much slower)

Thanks - yes I have seen this before. This could work to a point but is there no way to rather do it in the actual PHP class by using a variable such as $Pos rather than in the template or will this also work in the code behinds?

sorry for delay
can't exaclty imagine what this might be good for...
could you post some example code?

In a PHP class you can use iteratorPos on the object being looped through.
class MyObject extends DataObject

Sorry, this does not return anything in a Page_Controller function.
Reason I need this is to make iteration unique since they are not.

Please post all of your relevant code.

Basically I have a function called MyFunc and in the template I want to be able to make a calendar unique on a form which is in a control. If a click the calendar or use some AJAX thingy it will not work. So this is what the code is:
<% control Event %>
<% end_control %>
PS: I just posted an update to Sapphire on Trac. Hopefully the fix I just submitted will allow for this to work since I can't see any other way for it to work. My fix allows a dynamic parameter to be passed into a function via the template. So, you can have: $Top.CalendarForm($ID)
