[Mapguide_users] FW: Remove layers at runtime

I haven't got any feedback yet, but I have been trying desperately to
make this work. To recap, I'm finding that adding a layer to a map at
runtime with MgLayerCollection.Add works fine. However, when I try to
remove layer(s) with MgLayerCollection.Clear, MgLayerCollection.Remove,
or MgLayerCollection.RemoveAt the layer(s) are indeed removed from the
collection- but not the map. I am saving the map and refreshing the map
So why does inserting a layer into the MgMapCollection work, but
removing not? Looking at the developers guide on page 56 there is a
note for getting a layer collection from the map (MgMap.GetLayers):
In the MapGuide API, getting a collection returns a reference to the
collection. So adding the layer to the layer collection immediately
updates the map.
I am get the impression that adding a layer to the collection
automatically updates the map, this doesn't apply for removing a layer.
I can't figure out what I need to do to mimic what the api does for you
when inserting a layer when trying to remove a layer. Or is this a bug?
Thanks for any help in advance.

Subject: [Mapguide_users] FW: Remove layers at runtime
I've run into issues with removing all layers from the map at runtime.
See the code snippet below. All the layers get removed from the
layerCollection, but the layers still display. I've successfully used
the same code to insert layers, except I execute the
layerCollection.Insert(index, layer) method. I don't know why the same
code wouldn't work for clearing layers.
I have multiple layers stored in a library repository that users need to
add and remove at runtime. Do I need to copy each layer in indvidual
session repositories to add and reomove them? If I don't, will one user
adding/removing layers affect other user sessions? I know this is the
case when you edit data, but these layers are view only.
'Connect to site server, set resource service, and open map
'Clear all layers in the map
Dim layerCollection As MgLayerCollection = map.GetLayers()
If layerCollection.GetCount > 0 Then
Dim scriptKey As String = "ForceRefresh"
If Not Page.ClientScript.IsStartupScriptRegistered(Me.GetType,
