I am trying to implement a carousel , inside my views-view-fields--block_1.html.twig , I want to add active class inside the div for the first Iteration . I have added the code in twig file but every time it is adding active class for all the iteration.

code snippet:

{% if fields.counter.content == 1 %}
{% set tag = "active" %}
{% else %}
{% set tag = "" %}
{% endif %}

In my view title,body,image and result counter fields are there . From result counter i am getting the value and comparing inside the above twig file. Can anyone give suggestion, how to achieve this.


  • This is weird, if anything, your problem should be the other way around, where the tag is always empty. How can the counter be 1 for all rows? Try doing a {{ fields.counter.content }} and see what number shows up.

  • Did you try quoting the 1? So fields.counter.content == "1" - I could imagine that the field content renders to a string value and your unquoted condition evaluates to true as it checks whether the content is set. (Can't fiddle on a template right now, as I'm not in my office.) Dec 3, 2017 at 15:56
  • Thanks giving for suggestions , fields.counter.content == "1" worked for me.

If your code snippet is within a for loop, you could use either loop.first or loop.index in your if statement to target the first iteration. Refer to https://twig.symfony.com/doc/2.x/tags/for.html#the-loop-variable

Thus your twig template would probably resemble:

{% for item in items %}
  {% if loop.first 1 %}
    {% set tag = "active" %}
  {% else %}
    {% set tag = "" %}
  {% endif %}

... render row/field with class in template ...
{% endfor %}
