I have an init-Function, there some layers are added with the option displayInLayerSwitcher = false; Thats ok, but in some situations i need to set this later in the application to true. So i want to reset the option. The ways i tried to figure out:


my_layer.displayInLayerSwitcher = true;
// Result is, that my_layer is resetted and in the LayerSwitcher nothing changed.


my_layer.displayInLayerSwitcher = true;
my_layers_switcher = new OpenLayers.Control.LayerSwitcher();
// Same Result as by way 1

Anyone, who have an idea for this?

map.layers[i].displayInLayerSwitcher = false; //i is your layer number.

i hope it helps you...

  • Hello, thank you. I found out, why it doesn't worked. Sometimes, you can't see the forest through the trees. It's a little bit shameful, because i did not made the layer-variable global. So i could not access it in my function. only setting displayInLayerSwitcher = false; is working. – FreshAir Nov 6 '12 at 12:31
