Hi Fabian,

I don't think control activate and deactivate are meant to control the
visibility of the actual control. Compare this for instance to the
MousePosition control, it also does not disappear on deactivate. Normally
active means it will respond to mouse events etc.

There is however the ability the switch the graticule layer off and on
using the LayerSwitcher, or alternatively you can control it by using its
vector layer property called gratLayer directly, so e.g.:


Best regards,
