Mapguide 6.5 Modifying MWF Files

I am looking for a way to programatically modify mwf files. Specifically, I want to be able to load a map and change the Map Server Agent URL value on all of my layers within the MWF file.

 

I have been looking at the MGMapLayerSetup.getServerUrl method within the API but I'm not sure and cannot find any examples of how to implement this within a .NET application.

 

Are there any examples that you guys know of that can help me access this setting and modify the properties?

 

Thanks.

Save them as MWX files (via Author or Dynamic Authoring Toolkit) and edit the XML content using your XML document API of choice.

Thanks for the reply. Is the Dynamic Authoring Toolkit on the CD for 6.5 or where is the best place I can get hold of the installation for this?

 

I assumed that it should be converted to mwx first, I have been converting manually in the past, so this helps clear up the confusion. I wanted to make sure there was not a direct way to interface to the map using the API.
