Hi Michael,
thanks for answering. I did like you told. When i call the gui, i get 1 error:
mb_mapObj[ind] is undefined
makeRealWorld2mapPos("mapframe1", 3438447.53320008, 5526614.39736355)map.php?...0,5527264 (Linie 129)
mod_usemap_set([""], [3438447.53320008], [5526614.39736355])map.php?...0,5527264 (Linie 1804)
init()mod_usem...eight=400 (Linie 9)
onload(load )mod_chan...=overview (Linie 1)
function makeRealWorld2mapPos(frameName,...));return new Array(pixPos_x,pixPos_y);}

I don't think that this error belongs to the problem, because it appeared before activating the measure button. When hitting the measure-button, nothing special happens in firebug (no error message).
The info button also doesn't work. It doesn't matter, which button i hit (rubber, measure, info) it always starts measuring and nothing else.
When testing, firebug seems not to have knowledge of these three  buttons (there is no html-highlighting when passing with mousecursor over the buttons).
If necessary, i send you a link to the gui by private mail.
Best wishes
