<h1>ol-ext: LayerSwitcher control</h1>
<div class="info">
Add a layer switcher inside or outside the map.
The <i>title</i> or <i>name</i> layer's property is used to named the ol.layer in the switcher.
It shows use of the <i>displayInLayerSwitcher</i> layer's property to cause it to not display in the LayerSwitcher
The <i>baseLayer</i> layer's property manage exclusive visibility on layers (only one base layer is shown at a time).
The <i>allwaysOnTop</i> layer's property make a layer to stay on top of others.
Layers in an ol.layer.Group are grouped together and can be managed all together (visibility/opacity/ordering).
The <i>openInLayerSwitcher</i> property of an ol.layer.Group is used to code the visibility of the sublayers.
The <i>show_progress</i> option display a progress bar on tiled layers (only once per map).
You can use the <i>setHeader()</i> function to add a header to the layer list.
You can use the <i>drawlist</i> event handle the current line display (add button, change list style, etc.)
It trigger a <i>toogle</i> event when shown/hidden
