The normal \doif... commands don’t work because they aren’t expandable
but you can use the \expdoif... commands (look into setup-en.pdf for all of them).

Dear list,

thanks to Wolfgang, I learnt to set conditional format in xtables, such
as in:

[foregroundcolor={\ifnum\currentxtablecolumn=2 red\else green\fi}]
\startxcell one \stopxcell
\startxcell two \stopxcell
\startxcell tree \stopxcell
\startxcell four \stopxcell

My question is whether I can use ConTeXt conditionals instead of the
ones from TeX. {\doifelse{\currentxtablecolumn}{2}{red}{green}} doesn’t
work here.

Many thanks for your help,
