I am using the following code to remove a layer from javascript map but how do I also remove it from my toc?

for (var j = 0, jl = map.layerIds.length; j < jl; j++) { 

            var currentLayer = map.getLayer(map.layerIds);

    if(currentLayer.id == 'StoresResultsLayer'){

     map.removeLayer(map.getLayer(map.layerIds));

    

    };   

};

I tried this but I don't get the whole splice thing.

     toc.layerInfos.splice(3, 0);// remove it.

     currentLayer = null;

I create it using this code:

      var StoresResultsLayerURL = "My layer link here";
      var StoresResultsLayerOptions = {
        "id": "StoresResultsLayer",
        "opacity": .99,
        "showAttribution": false
      };
      var StoresResultsLayer = new esri.layers.ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer(StoresResultsLayerURL, StoresResultsLayerOptions);

var layerDefinitions = [];
//layerDefinitions[0] = varQuery;
//layerDefinitions[1] = varQuery;
//layerDefinitions[2] = varQuery;
layerDefinitions[3] = varQuery;
layerDefinitions[4] = varQuery;
StoresResultsLayer.setLayerDefinitions(layerDefinitions);

      StoresResultsLayer.setVisibleLayers([3, 4]);
  
var h = StoresResultsLayer.on("load", function () { 
         toc.layerInfos.splice(3, 0, { 
            layer: StoresResultsLayer, 
            title: "Stores Results" 
          }); 
          toc.refresh(); 
          toc.on('load', function (evt) { 
            toc.findTOCNode(StoresResultsLayer, 0).hide(); 
            toc.findTOCNode(StoresResultsLayer, 1).hide();
   toc.findTOCNode(StoresResultsLayer, 2).hide();

          }); 
          h.remove(); 
        });   
  
   //dlMCY_Stores.hide();    

//---  End Add Layer to TOC ---//     
map.addLayer(StoresResultsLayer);

Ok so technically no but that code does not remove it from the TOC.  It was part of my original question but it did not do everything.  However, it helped me with a couple of big questions like adding a dynamic layer with certain layers with a filter.  So I marked it answered.

Plus the function I am using is on a different button that clears all results from the map and clears out all of the text boxes and such.  So my problem is that if the layer exist I can remove it from the map but not from the TOC.

for (var j = 0, jl = map.layerIds.length; j < jl; j++) { 

            var currentLayer = map.getLayer(map.layerIds);

    if(currentLayer.id == 'StoresResultsLayer'){

     map.removeLayer(map.getLayer(map.layerIds));

    

    };   

};

Michael,

   The link that Ken has in his post is not marked as answered and in all my testing the code I provided in that thread does remove the layer from the TOC and map...

Ok I fixed that and did make sure it is listed as correct answer.  Get a little confused on that sometimes sorry about that.  My bad.

I took a look at the code and this is not working for me which I copied from the original code.   Again this is going to be from a separate button that I am calling from

  <button dojoType="dijit.form.Button" data-dojo-props="iconClass:'dijitIconClear'" onClick="clear();">Clear Results</button>

      function clear(evt) {

//---Start of remove layer if it exists. 
        for (var i = toc.layerInfos.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) { 
          if (toc.layerInfos.title === "StoresResultsLayer") { 
            toc.layerInfos.splice(i, 1); 
            break; 
          } 
        } 
        for (var i = map.layerIds.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) { 
          var currentLayer = map.getLayer(map.layerIds); 
          if (currentLayer.id == 'StoresResultsLayer') { 
            map.removeLayer(map.getLayer(map.layerIds)); 
            break; 
          }; 
        } 
  toc.refresh();
        //---- End of remove layer if it exists.

Here is a simplified fiddle.  As you can see it adds in storesresultslayer but if you click the get results more than once you see it in the toc twice.  If I try to click the clear results it removes the layer but not out of the TOC.

I think part of my problem was that at one point we were using the layer title and then in the second part using the Layer.id.  I named them different in my real code vs my fiddle example code.  Sometimes it is just the simple stuff that is easy to over look.

//---Start of remove layer if it exists. 
        for (var i = toc.layerInfos.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) { 
          if (toc.layerInfos[i].title === "StoresResultsLayer") { 
            toc.layerInfos.splice(i, 1); 
            break; 
          } 
        } 
        for (var i = map.layerIds.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) { 
          var currentLayer = map.getLayer(map.layerIds); 
          if (currentLayer.id == 'Stores Results') { 
            map.removeLayer(map.getLayer(map.layerIds)); 
            break;
