[mapguide-users] Help with opening maps from code behind

I can't guess what you want to do.
The name of the map that you are trying to open is constructed by the 
AJAX viewer, and is always identical to the name of the MapDefinition on 
which it is based.
If you want to read the name, open the WebLayout, look at the 
resourceID: "Library://Folder/MyMap.MapDefinition".
In the above case, the name will be "MyMap". It will be stored as 
"Session:xxx//MyMap.Map" where xxx is the session id.

The rename operation is called "MoveResource" but I don't know how it is 
exposed in the API.
Beware that moving resources will break any references to the resource.

A much easier approach is to save the map under a different name.
If you save in the session repository, it will be cleaned up on session 

If you want to switch runtime maps, I suggest you try out the Fusion 
viewer from MGOS 2.0 Beta 1, as it supports that.
