I have a menu which creates its top level using code

<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if Children %>
<li ><a href="#" onFocus="if(this.blur)this.blur()" class="$LinkingMode" >$MenuTitle.XML ...

I want to change this so that it every second menu option is a different colour i.e. odd it is organge, even it is grey.

To this I want to test against its order in the sitetree (unless someone thinks there is a better way) but I am not sure what this variable is called?

Thanks

Catherine

The below should work (see http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=built-in-page-controls)

<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if Children %>
<li class="$EvenOdd"><a href="#" onFocus="if(this.blur)this.blur()" class="$LinkingMode" >$MenuTitle.XML ...

$EvenOdd will return even or odd, so just make two css classes with these names and style as you wish.
