Hi Paul,


I have another question about the WMSBrowser widget.

Our customer wants a situation in which not every user of an application
has rights on the Manage Servers widget. But all users should have access
to the WMSBrowser widget in order to be able to add external layers to
their application.

Is there an easy way to use a widget parameter to optionally include the
"Manage Servers" into the WMSBrowser dialog?

BTW: there is a small javascript error in mapbrowser_iframe_en.html:

if (obj.options[i].value == documents.forms[0].WMSSERVERS.value)

documents should be document (you won't notice it in Mozilla, but in IE it
prevents the Manage Servers dialog from popping up).

Best regards,
