(copied from a response I just sent to another user)

The problem is that you currently have to specify the layer TYPE before
accessing its CLASSITEM.  This has been filed as a bug and in the future we
prevent users from trying to acess CLASSITEM before setting the layer's TYPE
a javascript alert such as "The type of this layer is not set or hasn't been
saved. Please choose an
appropriate layer type for your data and click Apply Changes".
