maybe try to do it in earlier stage like "initialize" or "initializeRequest" 
(depending if you need to recover some value from the exchange request 
object from client side)
you have an example of initialize in ServerSearch.php
and of initializeRequest in ServerImages.php


Hi Oliver

I call the method $mapOverlay->updateMap($map); in the handlePreDrawing 
function in the server part of my plugin.

Hi Christoph

maybe you are doing it too late, after the query functionality gets some
In which function did you add the mapoverlay code ?
