Is there something akin to <txp:if_article_status> available?

Hi.
I’m trying to get my head around Live and Sticky articles, and I’m stumbling when it comes to determining the status of an article. What I’d like to do is run a check for if an article has the status of Sticky, like this (bogus tag used):

<txp:if_article_status status=“sticky”>
<p>Article is sticky.</p>
<txp:else />
<p>Article is not sticky.</p>
</txp:if_article_status>

I can’t see anything that might be able to extract the status from an article. How might I go about achieving this?

Thank you in advance.

There are some article fields queryable by TXP’s custom field tags, status is among them:
<txp:if_custom_field name="Status" value="5">Sticky</txp:if_custom_field>.

I was going to mention that yesterday but stopped myself at the last moment. Since it’s technically a bug (albeit a safe one), relying on it is probably not advised. But practically speaking, it’s not going away any time soon.

Thanks, Stef – I ended up going for wet_if_status in the end, fits the requirement perfectly.
