knockout.js using $index with if binding
I’m trying to show some mark up based on the value of $index, I can display the value but I can’t seem to use it with an if binding, what’s the best approach here?
$index is an observable, and observables are functions. When you use observables in an expression you must use the () form to access the value.
<!-- ko if: $index() === 0 -->
From the knockout bindings page
$index (only available within foreach bindings)
This is the zero-based index of the current array entry being rendered
by a foreach binding. Unlike the other binding context properties,
$index is an observable and is updated whenever the index of the item
changes (e.g., if items are added to or removed from the array).
<div data-bind="foreach: details.additionalDetails"> <!-- ko if: $index() !== 0 --> <span> | </span> <!-- /ko --> <span data-bind="text: name"></span> <span data-bind="text: value"></span> </div>
