Monorail + NVelocity + How to find out if your in the first item of a foreach loop?

A colleague needed to add a button to the first row of a table but how do you do this in a foreach loop?

NVelocity has a property called $velocityCount which you can check within the foreach loop:

<span class="kwrd"><</span><span class="html">table</span><span class="kwrd">></span>
#foreach($detail in $details)
  <span class="kwrd"><</span><span class="html">tr</span><span class="kwrd">></span>
    <span class="kwrd"><</span><span class="html">td</span><span class="kwrd">></span>
      #if($velocityCount == 1) First Row! #end
    <span class="kwrd"></</span><span class="html">td</span><span class="kwrd">></span>
  <span class="kwrd"></</span><span class="html">tr</span><span class="kwrd">></span>
<span class="kwrd"></</span><span class="html">table</span><span class="kwrd">></span>
