An old post, but if anyone is still interested:

I found allthough something like <% if Top.SomeSetting = SomeValue %> will generate a parsing error, simple checking on true or false <% if Top.SomeSetting %> seems to work allright, meaning you could check on some Top setting from within a control structure and retrieve a sub property (in 2.4.5):

// in the Page_Controler
function isTheRightPage() {
	return ($this->Title == 'SomeTitle')? true: false;

<% control MyObjects %>
	<% if Top.isTheRightPage %>
		<!-- do something with the object based on the page title %>
	<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>

Go to Top
