Open, bind, and unload a selected xref.

Benzigar Peter has added functionality to a previously published tip. The original, submitted by Murray Clack some 15 years ago, allowed users to detach an xref by selecting the object in an AutoCAD drawing. Benzigar has added the ability to do other things with a selected xref, including open, bind, and unload. To use this routine, load the LISP file and type in the command DetXrf. You will be prompted first for an action, and then to select an xref. This tip is a good example of using small functions and calling those functions depending on the choices of the user. Thanks, Benzigar.

This already possible via the right-click menu in 2009 and up. Select the xref and right-click to Edit Xref in-place, Open Xref, Unload, Reload, Detach, Bind, Clip Xref, Frame, or Xref Manager.
