SelectWithin – MapGuide 2011 or MG OpenSource Fix for FUSION

I really like the widgets in MapGuide Flexible Web Layouts a.k.a Fusion.

I had a weird issue where I buffered an area and wanted to select within that buffer those layers available to select (in my case ‘Parcels’).  But the list of selected layers include those that are hidden in Groups that aren’t even turned on.

Here is how to fix MapGuide so you only get the list of selectable layers that are actually turned on:

In the C:\Program Files\Autodesk\MapGuideEnterprise2011\WebServerExtensions\www\fusion\widgets\SelectWithin\ folder open the SelectWithinPanel.templ page in notepad.exe.

we want to replace the FillLayerList() function with the following:

function FillLayerList()
 var currentVisibleLayer=0;
 var list = document.getElementById("layers");
 var listNames = document.getElementById("layerNames");
 list.options.length = 0;
 var map = GetParent().Fusion.getMapByName(mapName);
 var layers = map.aMaps[0].getSelectableLayers();
 if(layers.length > 0) {
 for(var i = 0; i < layers.length; i++) {
 var layer = layers[i];
 var groupVisible = true;
 var currentGroup = layer.parentGroup;
 while(currentGroup.name != "layerRoot")
 currentGroup = currentGroup.parentGroup;
 list.options[currentVisibleLayer] = new Option(layer.legendLabel != ""? layer.legendLabel: layer.layerName);
 if (i == 0) list.options[0].selected = true;
 listNames.options[currentVisibleLayer] = new Option(layer.layerName);
 } else {
 list.options[0] = new Option("__#BUFFERNOLAYER#__");
 document.getElementById("Done").disabled = layers.length == 0;
