Wms on/off button

Hi Menion,

What about having a button to switch on and off WMS layer?

I wish to expand a bit this request.

To switch a WMS layer off with my phone I need 1) to enter the main Map menu, 2) enter the WMS tab and 3) tap on any available map name to switch the current layer Off (WMS layer than turns the name from red to black). After clicking, the App returns automatically in the map screen.

So, if I wish to change from one WMS service to another, I need to do the above and then repeat all the three steps to switch on the new layer.

And again when I wish to switch it off completely.

I was wondering if there isn't any way to speed it up a bit.

Good day Andrea,

I'm just testing it and seems that select of different WMS map while other is still active, cause these steps:

  • disable active map and close Map manager
  • after open and click again on second WMS map, it is finally selected and Map manager is again closed

This is unwanted behaviour and I've just fixed it. So in next version, selecting different WMS map, firstly remove active WMS map from the map and then active new WMS map in the single step.

Does this solve your request?

I'm not sure about the place and generally benefit of placing single button directly on main map screen with an option to turn off WMS layer when this "click" is directly in Map manager > WMS tab.Jiří M. aka Menion

Hi Menion, thanks. The behaviour was exactly as you stated and your fixing solves the problem. However, I would consider a switch for wms layer off a useful additional improvement, not necessary but useful. I perfectly understand you get many requests and you cannot accomplish them all. My idea is only a suggestion, feel free to reject. I also propose a possible easier solution to include switch in the wms level window. See attached

Hello,

oki, let's try it with small "eye" button at the top of side panel.

Hi Menion,


The small eye switch works but it doesn't hide the two Wms buttons after switching off the service. The buttons remain on screen but are not enabled.

Regards

Hello,

ah thanks, I've completely overlooked this. If you open any other screen and return back (like map manager), icons should hide.

Thanks, will be fixed in next version.
