Hello Oliver

Everything ok with the switches. I just want to know what I have to do if I want to select/unselect layers on the fly. That means to select/unselect displayed layers at the moment I change the switch.
I suppose that a new filter plugin would be the right way.

Hi Christoph

Im not sure I understand whats wrong with using switch ?

using filter in FilterPostRequest is quite common

you can search the user list from the search form on , select CW-users ML in the list
