Hey guys

I have a menu control where I want to show an element after each menu item unless it's the last one.

The following code seems like it should work but doesn't:

<% if Pos != TotalItems %>|<% end_if %>

It outputs whatever is inside the if statement, even when $Pos and $TotalItems are equal.

Any ideas?

I think what you are trying to do is:

<% if Last %><% else %>|<% end_if %>

You cant compare two template variables like in your example. The template parser assumes the rhs of the statement is a string, not a var.

Hope that solves it

Ah cool - will give that a try. Where are things like "Last" documented?
