    Question WMS not in Map-Contents

    Hi experts,

    I've got a problem with ArcGIS for Sharepoint and the Add-WMS-Plugin from the SDK.
    The plugin ist working and the WMS-layer I want to add is displayed over my base-map. Fine.

    But the layer is not displayed (or not added) to the "Map-Contents"-section and so it's hard to work with this layer.

    I have no clue were the problem is, but I think it must be in WMSCommand.xaml.cs.
    I've done some little changes to this file, because my WMS-server does not match the name-schema from the example (not the same ending of the link) and my code looks no like this:

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Windows;
    using System.Windows.Controls;
    using ESRI.ArcGIS.Client.Extensibility;
    using ESRI.ArcGIS.Client.Toolkit.DataSources;
    namespace WMSCommand
        public partial class WMSDialog : UserControl
            public WMSDialog()
            private WmsLayer wmsLayer;
            private void Add_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                wmsLayer = new WmsLayer();
                wmsLayer.Url = ((ComboBoxItem)this.WMSList.SelectedItem).Tag.ToString(); 
                // Copy the ProxyHandler.ashx file to the following location on the SharePoint Server: 
                // <Program Files>\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS
                // Supply the Url to the proxy.  Substitute the domain of your SharePoint server.
                wmsLayer.ProxyUrl = "http://bimsp001/_layouts/ProxyHandler.ashx";
                // In order to get the names of the layers, it needs to call getcapabilities
                wmsLayer.SkipGetCapabilities = false;           
                wmsLayer.Version = "1.1.1";
                wmsLayer.Initialized += WMSLayer_Initialized;
                string layerName = "WMS Layer";
                if (wmsLayer.Url.ToLower().EndsWith(""))
                    string[] splits = wmsLayer.Url.Split('/');
                    layerName = splits[splits.Length - 1];
                wmsLayer.SetValue(MapApplication.LayerNameProperty, layerName);
            /// <summary>
            /// In the initialized event, the getcapabilities request returns the names of the layers
            /// </summary>
            private void WMSLayer_Initialized(object sender, EventArgs args)
                List<string> layerNames = new List<string>();
                foreach (WmsLayer.LayerInfo layerInfo in wmsLayer.LayerList)
                    if (layerInfo.Name != null)
                wmsLayer.Layers = layerNames.ToArray(); 
    The WMS-link I want to add looks like this: http://fbinter.stadt-berlin.de/fb/wms/senstadt/fnp_2009

    I have tried to delete the if-statement and split just any URL I add, but this does not solve the problem.
    Help would be really appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: I just noticed that the layer-name ist displayed in the following dialog and if I want to remove the layer. But just not in Map-Contents on the right-side of the map.
