[maplab-users] Question about Legends and Layers

Hi all,

I have a guestion regarding Layers and Legends.
History, I used maplab and gmap factory to create an application
starting point then, the resulting files were modified by hand to
integrate other features - mention this because it is possible that I
broke something.

I have two Roads layers where the only difference is that they render as
different scale factors with different characteristics. In my HTML
legend I always get 2 Roads lines showing one for each rendering style.
What I would like to get it only one line where the icon changes based
on the scale factor of the applied map since the two layer are mutually

To generalize this, I would like legend entries that can't be seen
because of the scale factor to not be rendered in the legend. Why should
we confused the user with a lot of extraneous legend entries that are
not rendered because they are out of scale.

I also tried to make the Roads layer into a group hoping that it would
only show the group name in the legend, but that didn't work either :(

I have a similar thing happening with ANNOTATION layers. It would be
nice if I could specify what items I WANT in the legend and/or what I
would like EXCLUDED from the legend.

Also, if I don't NAME the layer I get a bunch of [if ... ] that looks
like code in my legend.

Any suggestions or ideas?
