Foreach velocity outputting the same values

We're trying to use the foreach directive in Velocity to list all the Order Dates that a contact had have, over time. 

 

For example, Joe Smith placed an order today and one yesterday, so in the email I want it to list out both dates. I've used this script:

 

<ul>
#foreach ($Program_Order in $Program_Order__cList)
<li>${Program_Order__cList.get(0).CreatedDate}</li>
#end
</ul>

But in the email outputs, it just lists out yesterday's date, twice. So it's recognizing that Joe has 2 order records attached to it, but only populating it with the first order's created date in the list. What am I missing in the script? 

 

Thanks!

Re: Foreach velocity outputting the same values

You keep getting the same index, so that's to be expected.

 

You want

 

<li>${Program_Order.CreatedDate}</li>
