Manage operational layers


This sample demonstrates how to add, remove or reorder operational layers in a map. The map in the sample app comes with two map image layers already added. If you tap on the Operational Layers button in the bottom toolbar, you will be shown a list of the layers. The list is divided into two different sections. The first section has the layers that are currently part of the map and the second sections has the removed layers. In the first section, you can tap on the - button to remove a layer or you can tap hold the reordering control and drag to reorder a layer. In the second section, you can simply tap on a removed layer to put it back. The layer gets added onto the top.

How it works

AGSMap has a property called operationalLayers which is a list of AGSLayer. To add a layer the app uses the addObject: method on the list (AGSList). To remove a layer it uses removeObjectAtIndex: method and for re-ordering the list it uses a combination of those methods.
