  • As per the Tour there should only be one question per question and by asking the same question for multiple products this is effectively multiple questions. – PolyGeo May 11 '16 at 10:18

In OpenLayers Swipe Control is easy enough to use, the following code should set you up:

var map;
var swipe;

function init() {

    map = new OpenLayers.Map({
        div : "map",
        allOverlays : true

    var osm = new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM();
    var gmap = new OpenLayers.Layer.Google("Google Streets");

    map.addLayers([ osm, gmap ]);

    swipe = new OpenLayers.Control.Swipe(osm);


    map.setCenter(new OpenLayers.LonLat(10.2, 48.9).transform(new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326"), map.getProjectionObject()), 9);

function toggleControl(element) {
    if (element.checked) {
    } else {

Another example of swipe control in OpenLayers is this, and this.

This question is also a bit similar.
