Changing Menu based on selected Templavoila TemplateObject using TypoScript

TypoScript has so much features that it is indeed impossible to document each and every feature hidden with it. As we start adding extensions the feature list would increase as well.

Consider you have selected a specific Templavoila Template and you wish to have a different type of menu based on the selected template.
In such case it would be easy to change menu styles if the entire menu is enclosed in a separate CSS class.

I have given an example where I am checking for template IDs 10 , 11. If this template is used for current page I am changing it’s class.

lib.mymenu = HMENU
lib.mymenu {
entryLevel = 1
stdWrap.ifEmpty.wrap =  

1 {
wrap = <ul>|</ul>
NO.wrapItemAndSub = |</li>
NO.allWrap = <li>|
NO.allWrap {
override = <li class=”alternate_menu”>|
override.if.value = 10,11
override.if.isInList.field = tx_templavoila_to
# same way we can configure ACT and CUR as well
ACT = 1
CUR = 1


# For second level I would like to change the class of the A Tag
2 < .1
2.wrap = <ul>|</ul>
2.CUR.ATagParams = id=”cur_menu”
2.ACT.ATagParams.cObject = TEXT
2.ACT.ATagParams.cObject {
override = class=”cur_menu_a”
override.if.value = 10,11
override.if.isInList.field = tx_templavoila_to
3 < .2

#let us generate the 3rd level only if the page uses the Template of our choice.
3.if {
value = 10,11
isInList.field = tx_templavoila_to


Not all templates may have a template ID specified, in such case we need to use the sliding feature.
When we use the sliding feature the template id of parent ID is used.
We can do this Like: = levelfield:-1, tx_templavoila_to, slide

Usually Templates are stored in the Storage Folder, and you can view the Template IDs of Templavoila Template Objects from the list view!
