Request for change in the ajax viewer - legend with selectability

Description

Motivation Selection is something very centric in many custom applications. So it must be fast and easy to use. It is sometimes pretty difficult to select point features or to select many polygons object when there is other polygons under them.

So i would like to propose to add a new icon in the legend to be able to toggle the selectability of each layers.

There's a nabble thread http://www.nabble.com/Request-for-change-in-the-ajax-viewer---legend-with-selectability-td20837203.html

Fixed in r3764. Thanks for the patch Bruno, this is really useful!

I agree that this is a nice fix, but after looking at the screen cap in the discussion above it seems that the "arrow icon" added above is not very intuitive (i.e., I don't see the visual affordance for what it does). Or is that icon pretty standard and I'm not aware of it?

You mean the "arrow icon" doesn't really convey that the layer is selectable/not selectable?

Sorry for the late response... yes, that is what I am saying. Let's put this in front of some of our users and see what they think. Have we done this?

I should be more specific...let's put it in front of some of our viewer users...in the worst case, these are those who only know how to browse the web and might have used Google maps and some other Internet applications. My guess is that they will be confused by this icon if it is presented.

Maybe we need a way to turn it off (that is, don't display it)?
