Simple Layer Toggle with button

Question asked by bives on Feb 11, 2014

I am attempting to create a layer toggle that will turn a tiled service's visibility from true to false. So far I can't find an example where someone is setting a layers visibility to false. Is this possible with a statement similar to this: mapMain.layers.aerialsLayer.visible = false;??

Any suggestions are appreciated.
