Cross-posted at http://forum.thymeleaf.org/Using-th-each-loop-variable-in-OGNL-expression-td4031514.html.

I'm wondering if there is an elegant way to use a th:each loop variable's current value inside an OGNL expression. Right now I'm selecting the current value with th:object, and then referring to it in my expression with #object:

This would become very tedious though, as I expect to refer to loop variables a lot from OGNL expressions.

Is there a shorthand to automatically select the loop variable? Is there a shorter expression I can use to refer to my conversation variable from OGNL other than through #object? I feel that I am missing something.

Other comments on my code snippet are very welcome.

P.S. I'm not using @{conversations/{id}(id=*{id})} for the link, because I want to use a URI reference (conversations.get) rather than a path to refer to my controller action.
