I have created this JSFiddle OpenLayers map that toggles the layers visibility using the bootstrap-switch.

I am looking to achieve the same with leaflet but can't seem to get the equivalent of the setVisible command in Leaflet to work with the bootstrap-switch.

This JSfiddle also includes the Leaflet version that doesn't work.

  • have you tried layer.hide() function?

I've made a copy of your fiddle and here is working fiddle for your case
