I can add a wms layer to a custom web map, however is it possible to change the WMS layer properties dynamically?

For instance I'd like to pass a value from a text textbox to the the wms layer property so the users can adjust the wms layer properties. Ex. TIME or transparency percentage, etc. 

See customLayerParameters: {'TIME': datePick.value}

Trying to build an app which displays Nexrad radar reflectivity over time. 

Thanks.

I reworked your code snippet so that it picks up datetime value from the dropdown.
